Curwen Primary School was built in the 1970’s as a modern replacement of the original Victorian school building that stood on the site. The existing school had low ceilings, even in the halls, was draughty and poorly insulated and the mechanical and electrical services were inadequate. Asbestos had been widely used in the 1970’s construction.
 
We undertook enabling works including provision of temporary accommodation and a new permanent vehicle entrance/ access ramp to allow half of the school to be decanted. The works were then undertaken in two large well segregated phases.
 
Construction works included complete external refurbishment including new timber clad and insulated rendered facades with polyester powder coated aluminium windows and doors. The central core of the building was being replaced with a double height steel and glu-laminated timber framed “Heart Space” providing gym and hall, dining area, media/ICT area and library.
 
Classrooms were enlarged or newly constructed and incorporated wind-catcher naturally ventilation and underfloor heating. A new school kitchen, WC’s, offices and stores were provided.
 
Externally, covered play spaces were constructed to every classroom, with new hard and soft games areas, nature garden, feature areas and car parking.
