New Classrooms and Administration Facilities, Hunloke, Chesterfield , Derbyshire

Client:

Derbyshire County Council

 

Floor Area (sqm)

Value (£m)

Following a devastating fire that destroyed the existing classrooms and administration facilities at Hunloke Park Primary School, Wingerworth, Chesterfield, etc Design Ltd were approached by Derbyshire County Council as part of a Design and Build contract to replace the facilities as quickly as possible.

The use of pre cast concrete insulated and loadbearing panels were chosen to provide robustness, thermal mass and increased fire protection with concrete floors and a pitched roof. The existing site levels dictated a two level approach with the new school entrance at the higher level and the classrooms slightly lower.

The pre-cast off site solution minimized time on site and therefore disruption to the learning environment and therefore helped to restore normality to the school as quickly as possible.

The facility provides 4 classrooms, a library, new entrance with office, Head Teacher’s office, Staff Room, Medical Room, Interview room and toilet facilities.

etc Design Ltd were appointed to provide Architectural services as part of a team to develop the clients brief and produce a concept proposal, obtain full Planning and Building Regulation Approvals, provide the Technical Design suitable for construction purposes and contractor support to overall project completion.
