We were appointed by the London Borough of Camden to validate and expand upon a Condition Survey, which found areas within two blocks of poor repair and maintenance. Our team undertook three stage feasibility/design reports which, in combination of the Condition Survey, helped to develop the extent of the brief.
The two blocks are locally listed, and all works and designs were carried out sensitively. The West Block incorporates the main entrance, library, general teaching, ICT, sixth form area and offices. The North Block provides art rooms, technology classrooms, gym, swimming pool and changing facilities.
The works consisted of fabric refurbishments of most of the internal areas and all the external facades. Full roof covering replacement was undertaken to the North block and flat roof areas to the West Block. All windows to the West Block and sash windows to an indoor swimming pool in the North Block were replaced with double glazed timber sashes. Electrical items included the replacement of antiquated lighting, remedials to electrical circuits and extensions of the fire alarm system to provide an L1 coverage. New ventilation systems, inclusive of an Air Handling Unit, were introduced to the swimming pool, changing rooms and toilets.
