St Benedict’s is a leading independent catholic co-educational school providing education from nursery through to sixth form. We were appointed after the success of previous school construction work for the Sixth Form and Art Design & Technology Building. This school construction project, the New Ark, will re-provide classrooms for the Junior School and bring the Nursery on to the school site in a single, high performance, very low energy building, built to the very demanding ‘Passivhaus’ standard.
From the new construction, the school children will benefit from state-of-the-art spacious classrooms, with the Nursery and Reception classrooms opening out directly onto an outdoor learning and play area. The Junior School will also gain a new entrance hall and a Home Economics facility. The contractors work involved the demolition of the existing single-storey brick-built structure and the construction of a new three-storey cross-laminated timber structure with brick cladding to form a new teaching space, totalling 1600m2. The project took place whilst the school was in occupation and access and safety of the staff and students had to be managed accordingly.
