Description

The development comprised of two extensions to the existing school, the first being a single storey reception classroom block to the West of the site, providing the reception year with an additional 3 No. classrooms, and the second being a two storey teaching block to the North of the site, providing year 5 & 6 pupils with a further 3 No. classrooms each, with the addition of a resource and group centre along with a new ICT/Library suite.

Both the new single and two storey classroom extensions comprised a steel frame, with a composite deck solution for the first floor of the two storey extension, both built off pad and strip foundations, with a ground bearing reinforced slab solution.

Reinforced cantilever ground beams were required to support the steel frame structure at the interface between the new structure and the existing building.
