Appreciation towards Dream Building Service Association NGO (Contact: email@example.com) for providing the following description:
The world is struggling with the COVID-19 epidemic and gradually recovering. The economy and infrastructure of Eastern Africa is also suffering from the epidemic, and more attention and assistance are needed. Since Uganda is located in the central area of East Africa the economy has developed rapidly in recent years, many families in its vast rural areas are still living in poverty and their educational resources are also extremely insufficient. According to research, half of the schools use simple shacks as school buildings. Due to the various weather changes in the East African Plateau, shacks not only leak during the rainy season, but also have the risk of collapsing due to rain washing during stormy days, and the cost of maintaining school buildings remains high.

Obviously, the uneven distribution of educational resources caused by population growth and poverty, and some of experiences of school construction in developed counties are not suitable in this informal areas of Africa, in order to help low-income areas, in particular for providing children to have the right of education, with the full help Binance Charity, the propaganda of Uganda Binance His Grace school was set to be a practical and economical school buildings that has to combine with local construction techniques and materials.

Uganda Binance His Grace school was sitting in 30 km away from the northern Kampala capital, projection was around 25 meter by 26 meter, equipped with classrooms, offices and washrooms. In ordered to provide a healthy and safe educational environment before next semester, which was 3 months later, school was tend to broadly combine local building technique in its needs.

Facade and building Structure
In the facade, we take the firmness of the structure as a main consideration. Except for the roof, the entire building used a concrete frame structure, but considering the cost and weather resistance, we added facade buttresses to enhance the strength of the walls, and it also assists in supporting the floor and roof as well. At the same time, with a stronger sense with donator and environment. The color of the facade adopted bright yellow as the basic tone, and the outside of the buttresses were painted to white, emphasizing the transition of the surface and the cross-section of the volume, making the building facade more standout; windows, handrails and roof trusses were painted into dark red contrasted with the bright yellow on the facade, making the building more visually symbolic.

The school was very small but land was sufficient. The plan was to move the original school to a nearby simple shed that built with iron sheets, so that education would not be interrupted. then, the building volume was arranged around the base, which could maximize the use of the site and formed a surrounding. It was convenient for the management of the school and the activity venue was enclosed inside.

The enclosure volume was designed as a two-stories building. All rooms on the first floor opened to the inner courtyard to facilitate the collection and management of students. Except for the conventional layout of the classrooms, there were halls, offices, kitchens and washrooms. The hall here could be opened to surrounding villagers when necessary to carry out community activities. In order to ensure daily pollution-free Free Lunch could be delivered to kids, logistic passages were set behind the kitchen to facilitate the transportation of garbage, without passing through the inner courtyard to maintain the cleanness of the central area. What’s more the entrance of the school set to full-height space of the eaves, emphasized the main entrance and formed a sheltered space for rainwater as well.

With two stairs in the courtyard, you could easily reach the second-floor classrooms where were connected by external corridors. The corridors were all under the roofs. Even though rainy seasons, there was no worry that commute within this space. Based on the same consideration, at the end of the second floor, we reduced a classroom, and set aside space for a platform, where provided activity space with a shelter from wind and rain. At the same time, it also enriched the level of the entrance space. The barrier of the terrace was also the wall where the school’s name was hanging, and that made the school entrance more recognizable.

For the roofs, in regarding of local suppliers, wooden trusses covered with corrugated galvanized metal sheets was highly recommended. Not only the lightness and also provided sufficient stiffness while balanced the cost and the overall aesthetics.

Slab — low-tech
The structure of the floor slab which we focused on how to apply existing local technology to make the cost more economical while ensuring strength and safety. The force was in the lower part of the slab which was taken tension mainly that steel bars with high tensile strength were used as the stress material. The remaining part is filled with bricks which aim to reduce the mass of concrete slab. It is only used in the gaps between the bricks also the concrete bonds the bricks and steel bars to make them tied together on the upper part; on the other hand, the upper part of the floor was mainly in compressed, and reinforced concrete was used to resist compression. This approach made full use of the mechanical properties of each material, made the best use of the material, and balanced the cost to ensure sufficient strength and safety.
