Client: Hampshire County Council
Contract Value: £2.46
Duration: 52 weeks
Procurement: Two-stage framework
Completion: May 2021
Contract: JCT Standard Building Contract Without Quantities (2016)
The original school buildings date from 1977 with a number of additions over the years, and the site now needs rationalising and refurbishment. The new CLT/Glulam framed extension will provide 4 new classrooms, hygiene room, WCs and a library and a further extension to the Post-16 annexe will provide a hygiene room and accessible WC facilities. The new south-facing classrooms will be naturally ventilated and an external canopy will address solar gain, with a mix of mechanical and natural ventilation elsewhere in the buildings. The M&E installation focuses on high reliability, low maintenance, and low energy consumption throughout the building.
External works will include the landscaping of car parking spaces, provision of cycle parking, and the installation of ramps. Terraces, shaded play areas and quiet spaces have also been incorporated in the landscape design.
