DKA were appointed by South Gloucestershire Council for the design of a new 20 classroom block, dining hall, kitchen, gymnasium, all weather pitch and external hard play areas, and subsequently retained as client’s advisor during the design and build construction stage.
The work comprised the first phase of the planned expansion and renewal of the existing secondary school which was required to remain operational throughout refurbishment process. The project included 3 ICT suites, a new server room, digital projector facilities to all classrooms and school-wide wireless networking. The installation involved extensive negotiations and liaison with both school and local authority ICT advisors.
All buildings are designed to be fully accessible with lift to upper floors and generous circulation throughout.
