St Mary’s Catholic Voluntary Academy, Derby, United Kingdom

Following an arson attack, St Mary’s Catholic Voluntary Academy in Derby was redesigned by Hawkins Brown to emphasize sustainability and biophilic principles. The project aimed to create a safer and more resilient educational environment.

Burnblock’s eco-friendly fire retardant was applied to 53 cubic meters of cedar cladding supplied by Duffield Timber. This treatment, ensuring compliance with BS EN 13501-1 standards, was carried out by our trusted partner, FireWright, maintaining the wood’s natural aesthetics without the need for reapplication.

The project successfully enhanced fire safety and sustainability, resulting in a secure and visually appealing environment for students and staff. This collaboration highlights the importance of innovative, eco-friendly solutions in modern construction.
