School Extension
Client: Cambridgeshire County Council / Kier
Location: Huntingdon
Status: Complete

Saunders Boston were appointed as lead consultants on this D&B project to design an extension for an additional form of entry to an existing Primary School in Huntingdon.

The extension comprised of 8 classrooms, ICT & Library, Group Spaces, new Entrance and ancillary Staff Accommodation combined with extensive external works.

The two storey extension was constructed using a steel frame, combined with traditional masonry. It was clad in a mixture of facing brickwork, panelised cladding, and render with a low pitched metal roof.

Architecturally the building responds subtly to its surroundings. The low mono-pitch roof helps to reduce the overall massing of the building whilst the combination of cladding and brickwork gives a natural yet contemporary feel to the design.

The scheme was designed with a mixed mode ventilation strategy and will achieve a BREEAM rating of Very Good

Project Scope:
