Garba Tula School. Triad designed and supervised the construction of the original and subsequent phases of this project which was funded by the German Protestant Agency (EZE). The school consists of a single stream primary school, with associated dormitories, dining and kitchens, special classrooms and staff housing. The project was built in an isolated area of Northern Kenya. The project has a resident population dependant on its own services in excess of 1000 people and full power generating, water treatment and effluent processing plants have been installed.
Particular attention was paid to the environmental design. The altitude of Garba Tula is 2000 and the climate is hot. Cross ventilation and a solar roof system have been successfully combined to produce buildings which are cool and pleasant to work in.
