Typical for an inner city school, the academy is on a very constrained site, further complicated by local conservation listing of some existing Victorian school buildings.
Daniel Connal Partnership was appointed by the school to devise a scheme to accommodate additional teaching space, mentor space and new staff facilities utilising an unused building, the ‘School Keeper’s House’, within the school site.
Our architectural design reordered and extended the ground floor of the ‘School Keepers House’ linking it sensitively to the main school block and improving accessibility. This scheme provides space for a classroom able to accommodate 30 students; a mentor room for students; and admin/shower facilities for staff. As an additional environmental feature a green roof has also been incorporated into the design.
DCP liaised closely with the local authority Conservation Officer to ensure the architectural design would be sympathetic to the local listings on the site and we were delighted when planning permission was achieved.
The Daniel Connal Partnership is now supporting the academy with its bid to the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) to deliver the funding to realise the design.
