CLAPTON GIRLS’ ACADEMY
Project: Internal Reconfiguration & Refurbishment
Client: Clapton Girls’ Academy
Services provided: Project Management, Contract Administration, Principal Designer, Architectural Design
Contract value: £110k
The Clapton Girls’ Academy is a secondary school with academy status located in Hackney, East London.
Following an initial feasibility design we carried out for works at the school, Daniel Connal Partnership was appointed to provide project management, contract administration, architectural design and principal designer services on this internal reconfiguration & refurbishment project.
Our innovative design, relocating a mezzanine staircase to utilize dead space, maximised the available floor area to provide new office space, and also included classroom refurbishment and the installation of a folding partition in a large staff kitchen, to create a more flexible working area.
This project was subject to both time and budgetary constraints. To minimise disruption to students and staff, the school wanted the work to take place during the summer break. Daniel Connal Partnership responded positively to these requirements; meeting both the tight time frame and value engineering the works to come in on budget.
