BCAL Consulting were appointed to carry out the civil and structural design of this new-build, two form entry primary school with early years provision.
The school is located on a site within the new residential development being constructed on land which was formerly part of Bearscroft Farm, on the outskirts of Godmanchester, Huntingdonshire.
The school consists of a stand-alone pre-school area, a single storey infant block, and a two-storey junior school.
Within the school, there are double height spaces for the main hall and library / entrance area. The superstructure is a braced steel frame with composite concrete floors, and the substructure is traditional pad and strip foundations.
