St Joseph’s Primary School

client: Archdiocese of Southwark
location: Crayford, Kent

category: education

New single storey classroom extensions to 1950s brick building to provide additional teaching space to four classrooms that are currently undersized in relation to current (BB99) standards. Additions are formed from pre-fabricated timber cross-laminated elements. The extensions total approximately 63 sq.m. in area.

The proposals also include measures to improve connectivity to the extensive grounds that the school enjoys, and to provide level access directly from the classrooms to the outside (currently access is via corridors and negotiation of steps). The proposals also involve alterations to the windows and fa├žade to the Yr 6 classroom to provide level access, and local landscaping treatment to adjust levels and surface finishes.
