The £30m redevelopment of Parliament Hill School, located in the London Borough of Camden, has been successfully completed and handed over to the client.
The GSSArchitecture designed development includes a sports hall, science labs and general teaching classrooms as well as the refurbishment of the existing dining hall building, located at the centre of the site.
In addition, the neighbouring William Ellis School will benefit from a new two-storey addition, housing drama and music facilities. Both of the schools are part of the LaSwap Sixth Form Consortium, for which a brand new sixth form building has also been constructed, comprising a unique design that includes a green roof and living green walls.
GSS Senior Architectural Technologist, Oliver Reynolds, said, “Due to the project being carried out in a live environment, there were many challenges that the team had to overcome. Thorough planning and programming, whilst working collaboratively with Main Contractor, Farrans, and the rest of the team has resulted in a fantastic end result that the staff and students of Parliament Hill School can enjoy for many years to come.”
The redevelopment has been funded under the London Borough of Camden’s Community Investment Programme, and was delivered in a staged approach, helping to minimise disruption and, therefore, allowing the school to remain fully operational throughout the works.
