Project Story

We are currently working on a scheme via the SCF Framework involving the partial demolition of segments of the central & southern sections of the existing five storey building and replacing with a three storey plus basement building, along with a third floor roof amenity space in order to facilitate the use of the building as a specialist class D1 sixth form school.

The project also includes the removal of the existing single structure on the roof & extension of the two existing stair cores & lift overruns. We will also provide a new balustrade, photovoltaic panels & a sedum roof at roof level, replacement of doors & windows to include ventilation louvres, reinstatement of an entrance on Highbury Grove, provision of bicycle & bin storage & new glazed roof on single storey extension to the south.
Project Challenges
  • Our first creation of a specialist film school
