Zurich school and academy design guide

Reviewed January 2020


Zurich has produced a School and Academy design guide (a copy is held in the documents section of the manual)

When working on school and academy projects the guidance must be considered and discussed where appropriate with Oxfordshire County Council Corporate Landlord (OCCCL). Service providers (SP) are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to consult with the Zurich representatives listed within the guidance.

Special attention is drawn to section 5.2.3 regarding appropriate areas, height and treatment of timber cladding. Where there is significant conflict with the guidance the written response of Zurich must be obtained and discussed with OCCCL prior to design solutions being submitted to planning.

Consultation must take place when fire suppression systems are included as part of a project to ensure that any possible savings in insurance premiums are achieved. See Fire safety strategy
