This complex project involves the new build, refurbishment and remodelling of existing buildings to provide more capacity for the growing school. Careful programming of the works has been required to align with the school time table.
Structa are providing the structural design of new classrooms to sit on top of the existing ones and an extension of the main hall. To form the new classrooms we have adopted a light-weight timber framed structure sitting on top of a structural steel transfer grillage to limit the extent of foundation works. A sensitively designed green roof has been incorporated to ensure the new building blends in with the existing surrounds. Extensive remodelling of the existing school layout has also required significant structural input.
The highly contoured ground has resulted in extensive earthworks and the construction of new retaining structures.
