Birmingham’s Align Architecture recently helped Moor Hall Primary School achieve planning permission for a building extension.

The school required the extension to provide staff with additional early years learning space.

Align was appointed to create a sustainable proposal that would make best use of the available space, outlining plans for a new extension alongside refurbishment works that could accommodate a 60-pupil classroom.

The proposed development entails the demolition of a partition between two existing classrooms to provide one large, flexible space – refurbishment works have also been proposed to the existing reception classroom to create a new main reception and administration area.

Access has been reconfigured and the external play space rejuvenated to reflect the proposed changes to the school buildings.

“Not only did Align Architecture deliver a practical teaching space that matched our size requirements, but they understood our ambitions to create a modern classroom that would be visually appealing and sustainable."

Principal Architect at Align, Nick Clewer, said: “While it was important to offer a proposal that would be practical for its intended use, it was vital that the extension did not compromise on style and was visually appealing within the site.”

Andrew Steggall, Headteacher at Moor Hall Primary School, said: “We engaged Align Architecture as we knew they had experience helping other schools with similar projects and could trust their expertise to deliver a proposal that ticked all the boxes.

“Not only did they deliver a practical teaching space that matched our size requirements, but they understood our ambitions to create a modern classroom that would be visually appealing and sustainable.

“They successfully delivered a proposal that exceeded our expectations and addressed all of the key objectives we had originally set out.”
