A £33m re-development scheme aimed at creating a 21st century independent education campus. Over an acre of land has been transformed to accommodate new facilities including 32 state-of-the-art classrooms, a sports centre, dining halls and pavilion.
Gyoury Self undertook all structural design and detailing of this extensive project using Revit to produce an integrated BIM model.
The new classroom block was constructed using precast concrete roof and floor planks supported on large format thin joint calcium silicate blocks imported from the Netherlands. The pavilion block which is attached to the end of the classroom construction was built using reinforced concrete flat slabs on reinforced concrete columns.
The new sports complex and dining halls have been constructed on a steel frame supporting precast concrete floors. The dining hall is located above the main sports hall, and is supported on major prefabricated clear span steel trusses.
There is a deep basement to the sports block, requiring significant waterproof reinforced concrete retaining walls and a deep stiffened raft foundation. As the basement was constructed beneath the water table, significant temporary lowering of the ground water and consultations with Southern Water and the Environment Agency were required.
