The new building of the Urretxindorra School begins to show its facade

After completing the structure of the new facility that will cover the school places of its nearest area of influence, San Adrián and Miribilla, which cannot accommodate the current school of Urrentxindorra, the additional building, built by Vda de Sainz begins to exhibit part of its facade.

The current center that will complete the new infrastructure is seeing increasing year after year the demand for school places and has proposed opening a third line, which will be located in the new building under construction with BAT Architecture and Dimark, a company specializing in the design and calculation of structures, which is used to take highly innovative solutions as the one that has designed for the new building for the Urretxindorra school.

The population growth implies a population distribution with high percentage of children who begin school from the early stages of kindergarten with the necessity of a third school route, which involves the progressive restructuring of the school facilities, to the full implementation of the new line at all levels and courses.

The first step to take, which takes place at this time and will be completed in early 2017, involves the construction of a new school building that allows the initiation of the enlargement process and once completed, provisionally avails classrooms or levels to be restructured in the old facilities to provide global response to the new distribution of educational levels.

Distribution of the Building

The project has space for six courses, with three lines per course, i.e., 18 classrooms, so three classrooms for splits and three for support activities or pedagogical support will be needed. Instead of a multipurpose hall, it will house an auditorium, classroom, theater, music hall and another Hall for plastic activities, so the school considers that the school has the minimum requirements of multipurpose classroom.

The management and administration offices are located on the ground floor of the old building of the school. To ensure the control of each of the floors of the new building, there are provided two teacher zones, one on each floor. One of them is sufficient to accommodate all the teachers and will be a living educators itself, and on the first floor it has been provided a lower dimensional space, to receive parents or perform coordination tasks or making together of smaller groups.

Thus, the presence of teachers in both plants is ensured. The future infrastructure has on each floor two service centers located at the ends of the building. And something very important for young users of the future facilities: There are several playgrounds in the school. The construction of the new building has not reduced the area planted to court with respect to the existing one, since under the building it is created a covered patio, and both the commercial area adjacent and on the new primary center, the covers are intended to playground and area of orchards and gardens respectively.

Therefore, not only the surface has not been reduced but it has been increased with the cover area in the primary center. And finally, the school has provided a unique library located in the existing building and will be shared by the students of primary and secondary level.
