The Belham Primary School scoops SPACES award

Published 8th August 2023

Waterman are delighted that The Belham Primary School took home the ‘Education Refurbishment’ award at last week’s SPACES Awards (the Society for Public Architecture, Construction, Engineering and Surveying), held at the Pentahotel in Reading.

The awards celebrate excellence in our industry, rewarding great designs and buildings.

The Haverstock-designed Belham Primary School successfully combines a Grade II-listed Victorian school building with a modern extension, featuring weathering steel cladding. Bringing the historic former building up to scratch with a sympathetic restoration, the renovation element of the project focused on essential remedial works to restore listed building fabric securing the building and allowing future generations to flourish at the reinvigorated school.

The historic school building has been complemented with a three-storey extension, painstakingly designed to maximise architectural synchronicity and context. Our team provided Structural Engineering and Building Services designs.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the project!
