DKA were initially appointed to carry out the design work by Futures For Somerset (FFS) and were pleased to see the job through by assisting Harris Bors & Collard during the build phase.
Through consultation with the school, a layout comprising of eight teaching laboratories was agreed.
The strategy involved extensive refurbishment of the existing teaching block and also a considerable area of new build extension. Provisions also included ancillary support spaces and some new pupil toilets.
The plan was developed and adapted to provide an efficient layout, utilising an economic form whilst still creating a building with a prominent identity. The light and airy accommodation provides the school with modern science laboratories to meet the demands of the teaching curriculum.
The block has also been designed so that it links directly to potential future phases without compromising future access.
