Stunning school buildings in Southwark
We’ve undertaken two more substantial school projects for the London Borough of Southwark in combined contracts worth over £300,000. The first was to build an additional classroom facility for Keyworth Primary School in Kennington to help the school to ease the pressure on pupil numbers.
With a roll call of over 300 pupils the school wanted an additional modular classroom which we built here at our production facility at Langley Mill. It comprises four modules which combine to provide a new classroom, WCs, disabled WCs, storeroom and lobby.
We delivered the new classroom in time for the start of the September term and our installation team undertook all groundworks including foundations, external work and all mains services and connections.
Clad with Plastisol steel externally the school chose a soft Buttermilk colour for the external walls accented with brighter yellow handrails on the approach access ramps which run up to the main entrance door, with landing steps to the fire exit. White powder coated aluminium windows and doors also feature and a lightweight acrylic canopy on stainless steel brackets was fitted over the entrance door to provide shelter from the elements.
The main classroom area was fitted with Dune Max suspended ceiling tiles to provide good acoustics within the teaching area.
The second school to receive a new classroom this September was Grange Primary School on Tower Bridge Road. For them we built, delivered and installed the same classroom facility but this time we finished the exterior in s more dramatic blue and black colour scheme.
As you can see for the photographs, access was tight but our amazing driver managed to squeeze the crane in through the main gates will only millimetres to spare, enabling us deliver the building in time for the school bell to ring.
