One of the first wave of free schools, this project involves the refurbishment and Conversion of a Grade II listed building into a new school; through a process of inspection and justification of the existing structure and working with the architect and the contractor, the team was able to design out significant structural works. This kept costs on structural work to a minimum and enabled funds to be diverted toward enhancing the learning areas.
