State-of-the-art facilities for a leading independent school in Hertfordshire
1,900 sq m
A new, multi-use building was required to provide teaching, sports and socialising spaces for prep school students. The client wished to create an inviting environment to encourage learning and development for its pupils.
An existing 1920s school building was no longer fit for purpose and the client instructed us to demolish the structure – carefully working between several other Grade Listed buildings – and project manage the build of modern facilities, which included several classrooms, a science lab, library, sports hall and kitchen and dining areas. To minimise its ecological impact, the new building was required to utilise the latest sustainable technology.
The school is located within the green belt, therefore we advised how to navigate the restrictions associated with this while liaising with the local planning authorities. We conducted ongoing meetings with teachers and building users to ensure that the new structure was exactly as desired.
