by Rönning, Karolina; Lindkvist, Karin

Abstract (Summary)
Rotskärsskolan is located in Skutskär, Älvkarleby municipality and the school conducted today consists of lower secondary. The school was built in the early 1960s and contains three buildings. Today there is a great need for reconstruction of Rotskärsskolan, when the premises are worn out and not suitable for today's education. It must therefore be a phased change involving all the school buildings, starting in the winter of 2008/2009.Our degree project involves one of these buildings, called house F. This building will, by a recent decision, be adjusted for classes from preschool up to grade five, special school and leisure activities when some of the municipality's schools will consolidate. The purpose of this work is to present a proposal of a change for this building. The proposal will include a layout and design of facades, created on the basis of the users’ wishes as well as the social requirements and regulations.Some of the laws and regulations relating to a change in the building which was incorporated in the work process were the BVL, BVF, BÄR and BBR. In order to demarcate us some, we have chosen to only focus on the technical requirements relating to accessibility for people with impaired movement and orientation, safety in the event of a fire and safety in use. Inspiration and the lessons were taken by a literature review concerning school buildings and its premises.A pre-study of the building's conditions and the users’ wishes and requirements, were carried out during the programme stage. By using this information the results were reported in forms of flowcharts and a local programme. The next stage in the process, the layout design, the proposal is presented in form of hand sketches and drawings in AutoCAD.An extension was required in order to create spaces for the various activities in the building. To create a safer school yard for the younger students the extension was placed on the west side of house F. The entrances were developed to show more clearly where they are located as well as provide a more welcoming impression. In order to achieve the goal of creating pleasant and functional facilities, the layout was designed with a greater openness and more common surfaces such as study rooms and meeting points for the students.
