The not-for-profit organisation Katholiek Basisonderwijs Bocholt vzw wishes to build a new school
for 'De Driehoek' Open Primary School. This school is planning to move to a new location in Kaulillerweg, Bocholt. The location of the school on this plot of land is also part of the study and design assignment. 'De Driehoek' is a school with some 160 infants and 260 primary school children. The total gross area to be built (taking account of the physical and financial standards and based on the current number of pupils) is almost 4,300m2 for teaching areas, for sport infrastructure and for the covered playground. The assignment also includes surrounding works (parking area, bicycle shed and hard-surfaced playground).
The new school building must, within the established framework of budget, physical and financial
standards and details regarding the land, provide an answer to contemporary social and educatio
nal assumptions, on the one hand, and the specific educational project of the school on the other.
The new school building must take account of the various user groups, which means direct users (pupils, teaching and support staff), as well as secondary users (parents and external users in the context of 'broad use'). Naturally, the building must be safe, healthy, comfortable and easy to access. It must also provide a pleasant, stimulating and inspiring learning and living environment for all users. It goes without saying that the school building will be supportive of modern educational practice. Teaching today is active rather than passive, pupil-oriented rather than teacher-oriented, learning-oriented rather than teaching-oriented. By using alternative, experience-focused forms of work (contract work, project work, "corner" work) and working in regularly changing groups sizes (traditional, small groups, individual), the pupils take an active part in their own learning process. In so doing, the teacher tries to take account of the individual differences between the pupils and by differentiating the teaching provided. The required school infrastructure is required to facilitate these teaching methods. At the same time, the school building must not be too restrictive. The built environment needs to have a longer lifespan than educational views. School buildings must also, through their durability, be capable of accommodating any changes in educational practices over time (or even more fundamental changes to their function).
overall fees min. 8% and max. 10% of the building cost (the fees for studying stability, technical aspects, acoustics, EPB reporting and soil expert, earthmoving, etc. must be included)
