About the project

Pilgrims’ Way, is the new highly sustainable two-form entry primary school, located in Canterbury.

The project will embrace the DfE’s objectives toward net zero carbon. This will be achieved through sustainable design and construction processes, including energy efficiency and less reliance on gas by using air source heat pump technology. CarboniCa, Morgan Sindall’s in-house digital carbon reduction tool, will also be used to measure whole life carbon emissions, ensuring potential carbon outputs are managed and reduced during the design, construction, and operation of the building. You can find out more about our appointment to the project in this press release.
