Creche & Primary School Guidelines

Creche & Primary School Guidelines

Postby Deville » Wed Mar 22, 2006 4:03 pm

Hi there,

I am a student currently studying Interior Architecture. I am on my final project and I want to design a creche and primary school. I am having trouble finding the proper architectural guidelines. Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Emma

I presume you have read the recently updated Childcare Regulations?
Child Care (Pre-School Services) Regulations 2006
That should be your start point. Section 5 will be of particular relevance.

Also see Child Care Act 1991- Part VII – (Appendix D)
and the following:

Childcare Facilities – Guidelines for planning authorities (June 2001) (available from Government Publications Office and http://www.environ.ie)
Building Regulations, 1997 – S.I. No. 496 of 1997
Building Regulations (Amendment) Regulations, 2000 – S.I. No. 179 of 2000
Technical Guidance Document M (2000) – (Access for People with Disabilities)

Resource Pack to Support Best Practice in the Design of Childcare Facilities (currently
in draft) (will be available from City/County Childcare Committees and Pobal)

Fire Safety in Pre-schools
Code of Practice for Fire Safety of Furnishings and Fittings in Places of Assembly
(both available from Government Publications Office and http://www.environ.ie)

Building Control Act 1990*
Building Regulations 1997 – 2006 Parts A-M*
Building Regulations 1997 – 2006 2002 Technical Guidance Documents A-M*
European Communities (Hygiene of Foodstuffs) Regulations 2000 (S.I. No 165 of 2000).
Public Health (Tobacco) Acts 2002 and 2004

On the fire safety side maybe also have a look at
Building bulletin 100: Design for fire safety in schools (UK)

Well, if you wonder what the Department of Education actually does, it writes guidelines, - tons of them!
Try this for starters:
