Completion of new boarding house at Hurstpierpoint College
We're delighted to have handed over this stunning new 2000 SqM boarding house at Hurstpierpoint College. The detached, U-shaped building encloses a central courtyard, and offers 3 floors of accommodation for students, including kitchens, study bedrooms, dormitories, shower blocks, common rooms, and a matron's office.
With a projected programme of 42 weeks, it was decided to use an offsite manufactured solution for the building envelope. The closed timber panel system from Streif UK Ltd provided a high-quality, fast-track solution enabling the build of the watertight building envelope within just 60 days.
The final building features brick cladding with flint panels and red clay tile roofing with dormer windows which blend well with the surrounding older buildings. It rationalises the campus layout and provides high-quality, sustainable accommodation for the boarding students.
