The redevelopment of St George’s School involved the replacement of dilapidated buildings on the site along with the refurbishment of the existing early 20th century school house. The site was extremely congested and the design and execution has therefore been carefully considered and phased to take this into account and to allow the school to remain operational for the duration of the project. The pupils were relocated to a mix of temporary accommodation on site and off, with space being procured from a neighbouring private school.
The new structure and refurbished building provides a total of 7 new classbases within a steel frame structure with an engineered stone cladding in local Purbeck Stone.
Kendall Kingscott acted as Contractor’s Architect for the delivery of this scheme through the JCT Design and Build Contract 2011 edition.
The project was announced as winner of Refurbishment Project of the Year at the National Federation of Builders Awards for Contractor Herbert H Drew & Son Ltd and was also Highly Commended in the Heritage Project of the Year category.
