Birkett House SEN School, Wigston, Leicestershire

Birkett House has relocated to ultra-modern premises at the Wigston Secondary School campus in Station Road, Leicester. The new building offers places for 125 children and young people aged between four and nineteen. The school has a feature hydrotherapy pool, sensory and interactive rooms.

A SUDs drainage solution was used, involving swales, filter margins, raingardens and a wet attenuation pond providing a learning opportunity.

Due to the sloping nature of the site and desiccated soils, a complex geotechnical and foundation solution was required to make the site viable.

The school involved a complex structural scheme that was designed in Tekla and drawn in Revit.
