HUSH were engaged to provide Project Management & Employers Agent services for the conversion of a Grade II listed building with new 2 storey extension plus basement which provides a multi-purpose hall and hydropool as part of the scope to create a new SEN school for 72 pupils and supporting office facilities for school staff including therapists.
The works involved partial demolition and extensive refurbishment of the listed building. Classrooms are provided within the new extension which, compliments the heritage of the existing building whilst providing level access between the two.
Architecture PLB sought to retain the features of the existing configuration to create specialist therapy rooms, library, immersive technology space, music therapy and food technology spaces. The upper levels into the tower of the building provide office and archive facilities.
Extensive landscaping was undertaken to create external teaching and therapy spaces, sensory gardens and improved security around the boundaries of the property.
The project was been progressed in three phases:
1. Strip out and enabling works including localised demolition to develop the detailed design ahead of tender to achieve a more robust tender package.
2. Main works
3. Client fit out of therapy spaces and loose furniture ahead of occupation.
Within our role we have provided support for client direct works, planning of post completion activities and engagement and coordination of third parties involved in both Phases 2 and 3 of the project.
