Projects

St Benedict’s School, New Ark

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 the Sixth Form and Art Design & Technology Building. This 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.

 

The 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. Works 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 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.
