Woodberry Down Primary School Completion- May 2017

The school’s expansion is now complete.

The expansion from two to three forms of entry required new classrooms, wheelchair access to upper floors and improvements to the kitchen and dining arrangements.

 


Nespresso, The Oracle Reading – April 2017

As part of a refurbishment we were asked to re-engineer an existing glass façade – supported by bulky steel posts – with a brief to maximise transparency.

The main structural intervention we proposed were slender glass fins to replace the existing posts. However, as part of the bigger picture we developed a scheme that retains the existing glass panes, rather than replacing them, meaning a substantial saving for the client.

To do so, we designed laminated glass fins with bespoke steel insets (to connect them to the existing façade) which resulted in both a build-able and elegant solution.

 

 


Huguenot Place E1 on site – March 2017

Temporary work installed and new floors going in soon.


Woodberry Down Primary School, Harringay – February 2017

Both extensions (Classroom and Dining Hall) are largely complete and we’re into the final snagging stages for both ready for handover back to the school. The East & West ramps are the final items to be constructed on this project before completion. The East ramp links both new extensions to the rear of the school, ground has been broken and rebar cages are being formed prior to a concrete pour. The West ramp is positioned to the side of the caretakers house at the front of the school and provides an underpin and retaining action to the wall dividing the school and neighbouring property. A party wall award has been granted for the West ramp to be constructed and we envisage completion by the end of March.
