Providing efficient and well engineered design solutions

Extension to Geddington Primary School

The project consists of a new hall and kitchen with internal alterations to the entrance area and the addition of a mezzanine floor into the existing hall.  The contract value was £650,000.

There were significant level issues to overcome with the playground at the rear being much higher than the school.  This required a retaining wall to be incorporated into the rear of the new hall.  This was made into a feature with seated steps in the playground.

The existing timber roof trusses over the hall had to be strengthened with steels as the bottom tie rod had to be removed in order to accommodate the new mezzanine floor.
