New £230k classroom for Brooklands

A primary school in Greenwich has extended its facilities with a new timber-frame and laminated-beam classroom

Posted by Dave Higgitt | April 18, 2015 | Bricks & mortar

Alexander Sedgley were appointed by Brooklands School following a limited competition to design a new multi-purpose classroom building to take the place of a wooden and store on the school playground and to ease pressure on classroom facilities.

Used in conjunction with external games, the new multi-purpose unit was conceived as a timber-frame and laminated-beam structure with a sedum green roof. The design provides new IT facilities and includes a meeting/store area with visual connection to the main room space, windows with sensor controls and a kitchenette to encourage domestic science/healthy eating.

The new classroom was opened by the mayor of the Royal Borough of Greenwich in February. The main contract was completed in four months, with a contract value of £230,000, which included demolition and preparation of the site.
