Our Approach

Cambria Consulting were the appointed Civil and Structural Engineers for the design and specification of the sub and superstructure of Eastern High School. The new school will replace the existing Llanrumney High School and Trowbridge tertiary college to accommodate a total of 1520 pupils in the 11-16 year and post 16 age groups.

The structural steel frame has been designed to suit the architectural intent of creating an inspiring educational environment for secondary to post 16 pupils. This has been achieved with a braced steel frame with long span roof beams to accommodate the large double storey hall and dining areas. The roof has been designed to accommodate the load from PV solar cells.
