The Daily Mail reports:
Pupils at an ‘eco-school’ will have to be taught in temporary accommodation because the three-year-old ‘environmentally-friendly’ building which cost £7million to construct is leaking.
Dartington Primary School near Totnes in Devon was opened to great fanfare three years ago as one of the first ‘zero-carbon’ teaching facilities in the country.
The building’s architects even won a prestigious international design award for their creation of ‘one of the greenest schools in Britain’.
But now Devon County Council may sue architectural firm White Design because the building is leaking so badly the school’s 320 pupils can no longer be taught inside it.
