Daniel Connal Partnership is very proud of its track record on delivering successful projects.
Our company history stretches back some 70+ years, covering a wide range of sectors and encompassing major new builds, minor extensions, comprehensive refurbishment and alterations projects – you name it, we’ve probably done it. But education sector projects are special; creating attractive, comfortable and practical spaces to nurture and encourage the next generation is always particularly rewarding.
One of our most recent projects is at Queensbridge School. Queensbridge is an Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ school, centrally located in the London Borough of Hackney (LBH). Housed in a large Victorian building with a modern annexe, it caters for around 500 primary-aged children.
We were appointed by the LBH on a £160k internal alteration and refurbishment scheme for the annexe to provide a Specially Resourced Provision Unit catering for up to 10 pupils on the autistic spectrum with special educational needs.
The new facilities at Queensbridge include a specially designed sensory room, equipped with light tube and projector facilities, a colourful soft play area and a hygiene room. There is also a small groupwork room to facilitate one to one working and group sessions, a quiet room, staff area, storage facilities, separate accessible toilets for staff and pupils and separate dedicated access.
The project commenced on site in June and we were delighted that it was completed on budget and in time for the start of the new school year in September.
DCP has previously worked on a number of projects providing school accommodation for children with special educational needs including the GROW unit at Newland Springs Primary School in Chelmsford. https://www.danielconnal.co.uk/project/newlands-spring-primary-school-chelmsford/ which also features a specially designed sensory room.
