Grange Primary School Highly Commended at Civic Trust Awards
Waterman are delighted that Grange Primary School in Southwark has been Highly Commended at the Civic Trust Awards ceremony on 6 March.
With 115 national and international entries selected as Regional Finalists, this year’s winning schemes celebrated the outstanding architecture, planning and design in the built environment across 18 categories, with Grange Primary School being commended for the Greater London region.
The school, which dates back to the Victorian era, underwent a major refurbishment to create an improved school entrance and increase its capacity for an additional 105 pupil places. Its new structure included tasteful brick cladding that blends in with the surrounding residential properties whilst new characteristic pavilions house modern kitchen, nursery, library, staff offices and schoolhouse facilities, including new satellite classrooms, on the street front. The new buildings were constructed in a CLT structural frame with pitched roofs and a double-height Albert McKenzie dining hall provides enhanced dining facilities as well as allowing more space for the school to congregate for assembly.
