Old Sarum Primary School shortlisted for LABC Building Award
10 May 2018
Old Sarum Primary School has been shortlisted as a regional finalist in both the Best Public Service Building and Best Educational Building categories at the West of England LABC Building Excellence Awards 2018.
Designed by DKA and constructed by Morgan Sindall, the school’s extension was completed earlier this year and echoes the architectural language of the existing buildings.
The building was part of a major £2.6m expansion project which has allowed the school to double in size to 420 pupils. The new two-storey, steel-framed building provides eight new classrooms, a studio and a technology room.
Senior Architect, Jon Fifield said: ‘A key challenge during construction was working within a live school environment. The outcome has been worth persevering with and the school are reportedly thrilled with their new addition.’’
