Currently looking at the St Saviours, Larkhall, Bath project

Kendall Kingscott were appointed by Bath and North East Somerset Council to assist with the re-submission of a planning application for this site and have continued our involvement through to completion of the works on site. 

In re-visiting the original application and discussion of proposals with the stakeholder groups our team highlighted considerable discrepancies between the proposals and the school’s identified needs and this resulted in new proposals for a 5 class extension for the school which replaces 3 temporary timber classrooms and 1 Elliott unit. 

We undertook an option appraisal exercise seeking to address the new accommodation requirements alongside the complex nature of existing buildings, both permanent and temporary, on the site and the need to maintain safe access for staff, pupils and contractors through out the construction phases. 

In addition to the new 5 class extension, constructed using CLT panels, demolition of the existing buildings allowed construction of a new kitchen block and re-landscaping of the site; this provided improved access and site layout which included a new hard and soft playground.
