About The Project:

The project was to build a new single storey Primary School for Leicestershire County Council to replace the existing buildings.

The School consisted primarily of a number of classrooms and group rooms, communal education areas, a studio and a main hall. In addition to this, there were a number of administrative and staff offices, WC’s and store rooms.

Externally there was a car park with pedestrian access to the school, along with a covered entrance area for specialist student arrivals and collections.

Access to the site had to be handled carefully as the existing school had to function throughout the construction - not a single teaching day was effected by our time on site. The pupils were invited to attend fortnightly progress meetings and regular tours were arranged allowing pupils to be involved in the whole process.
