Brief

The construction of a second floor classroom block, on top of an existing two storey classroom block, comprising:

  • a structural steel frame with insitu reinforced concrete floor slab
  • a single ply membrane roof covering
  • curtain wall glazing system extending from the new second floor level to ground level
  • zinc rain screen cladding system
  • new stair and lift shaft block connected to the new facility
  • extension to the existing staircase from first to second floor level
  • new M&E services, suspended ceilings, partitions, joinery works, flooring and decoration works to the new classroom block and stair/lift block
  • complete refurbishment of the existing ground and first floor level classrooms, offices, toilet facilities and circulation areas

Key Features

These works were carried out whilst the existing two storey classroom block was occupied by and in use by the school, whilst maintaining minimum disruption to the staff and pupils. During the project the Client extended our scope of works at second floor level to provide two additional classrooms, and a number of further changes were incorporated into our works as a consequence of unforeseen conditions encountered within the structure and fabric of the existing two storey building.
