Stamford Schools – Sports Centre
GSSArchitecture were commissioned by Stamford School to produce a site-wide masterplan, to locate library/research, sports and performing arts facilities in separate locations around the School campus. This entailed designing a new, purpose-built sports centre, incorporating a 25m indoor pool, changing rooms, a fitness suite and a gymnasium, along with sheltered spectator terraces.
The site was particularly challenging in terms of access by large vehicles. As part of the planning application, GSS had to demonstrate in detail how construction traffic would be managed as it accessed the site through the nearby busy narrow streets.
The building has made a striking impact across the playing fields. It offers students first-rate facilities to ensure that sport at the school becomes even better.
