The site is an existing school where a number of structures were demolished, a number of classroom blocks were built the external spaces were rationalised and in certain locations resurfaced.



Within the canopies of the existing trees we proposed no dig construction, in line with industry best practice. Where wooden decks were proposed we adopted principals which minimised the likely impact on the roots of the existing trees. We adopted a number of construction techniques to provide the desired surface finish whilst minimising the impact of construction on the existing trees.



The football pitch was remodeled to accommodate excess fill and some contaminated fill generated by site excavations. This was designed so as to minimise the impact on existing and proposed structures and ensured that adequate circulation space was maintained.
