The project involved the erection of a 3-storey over basement building right in the middle of a live school campus. The co-ordination of construction traffic with the daily arrival and departure of 1,200 students, their parents and school staff, in cars and on foot, required careful planning and management. Health & Safety concerns, in parallel with the minimisation of noise and dust pollution, informed every action on site, with tight control of working procedures from beginning to end.
The structure has a reinforced concrete frame, with aluminium cladding, housing significant mechanical & electrical installation in a series of high-tech classrooms and laboratories. Photo-voltaic installation, solar heating panels and rainwater harvesting all contributed to a green footprint for the building.
