Creation of two new standalone blocks to provide additional classrooms and expanded staff facilities, providing the school with a new form of entry to accommodate increasing demand.

The Brief

As part of a wider programme to expand education provision across Hounslow, we were required to design delivery of new classrooms, improved staff facilities and amenities, a new car park and landscaping.

Delivered on an occupied site close to an existing school building, it was vitally important to minimise disruption to daily activities at the school and keep costs to a minimum.

Our Response 

We worked with the client to develop a number of options and decided on two large standalone buildings. This made efficient use of the limited space available and allowed us to minimise the impact of construction on the operation and footprint of the existing buildings.

Close liaison with school stakeholders throughout a challenging design and build programme allowed us to communicate our proposals to senior staff and obtain their support.

Key Facts 

  • Delivery of a high quality, significant school expansion within a strict budget.
  • Achievement of BREEAM Very Good and 20% carbon reduction targets.
  • Gained support of school staff to develop an effective access and phasing strategy.
