Project Details

This project involved the construction of the new Year 7 Classroom Block comprising of 6 GLA’s and 1 Music Room. The Music Room opens up to the amphitheatre within the Chapel Court. The works also inculded demolition of part of the existing building to allow a major extension to the existing Library. A new entrance to the College via the Chapel Court was also constructed by Alder as well as a terraced court yard area.

The Year 7 building covered 1350m2 and the library extension added 480m2 of useable area.

Towards the end of the project, Alder worked hand in hand with the College and architects, Hamilton Hayes Henderson, in designing and constructing the terraced area to the Chapel Court area that was additional to our original scope of works.
