Natural ventilation company Breathing Buildings has launched a guidance paper to help contractors involved in the Priority School Building Programme.

The company has supported the Education Funding Agency (EFA) in developing the Priority School Output specification, and is now working to help engineers comply with the new criteria and cost targets.

The guidance paper highlights the ventilation requirements within the new output specification, along with recommended solutions and data from Breathing Buildings sites such as Linton Village College.

The company's Dr Shaun Fitzgerald said: "We were honoured to be asked to contribute to the various meetings in the development of the Output Specification and feel that the new requirements are strongly aligned with our guiding principles regarding the importance of a sustainable ventilation strategy. Having been involved with the process we are very well placed to help contractors, architects and engineers comply with the new Priority School Output Specification and deliver a low energy school with a superb indoor climate."
