extension & new build
A complex project to create a new Junior School on a sloping site within a Conservation Area. The project involved a major new building on four floors, which linked two Victorian buildings and a large 1960’s extension. The new building provides a large multi-purpose hall, classrooms, main entrance and reception, staff rooms and ancillary spaces.
The existing buildings were all refurbished. A key design challenge was the resolution of levels within and around the buildings to provide full accessibility. Extensive negotiations with the local authority were necessary to secure planning consent. The contract value was approximately £1.2 million.
