BCAL Consulting was appointed to carry out the civil and structural design of this new extension to Corby Technical School.
The extension is located on the playing field to the rear of the existing school, and allows for the school to double their existing yearly intake.
The extension consists of a two storey block which abuts the existing building, allowing pupils to transition from one block to the other through linking corridors.
The super-structure is a steel moment frame with precast concrete floors and roof, and the sub-structure is traditional pad and strip foundations.
