  • The refurbishment of 20 general teaching spaces.
  • The creation of a new photography studio and darkroom facility.


Our engineering strategies included:

  • The phased upgrade of heating systems.
  • The upgrade of fire detection and fire engineering installations.
  • The upgrade of acoustic environment to satisfy the requirements of Building Bulletin 93.
