Elliott was commissioned by Ealing Council to design and build a new two-storey sixth form centre on behalf of Elthorne Park High School in the London Borough.
The building was constructed utilising an innovative new off-site modular system that incorporates a concrete floor at both levels and includes a full steel frame and timber in ll wall panels.
This ensures that the new facility has the look and feel of a traditionally constructed building whilst retaining the benefits of an off-site method of construction.
The modular units were completed off-site in a factory controlled environment and were delivered to site with all frame, walls, floors, internal partitions and first x M&E completed and ready for site installation.
The new sixth form centre incorporates 3 classrooms and a study room on the ground floor and 2 further classrooms on the first floor with a large open plan lecture study room. A range of ancillary facilities are provided throughout including toilets, offices and circulation space. The external façade includes an attractive ‘sun yellow’ Trespa panelling with white Stone render and solar shading to the grey aluminium windows and doors.
The entrance into the lobby area includes feature dark grey brickwork with large vertical signage for the building.
The building was completed in August 2012 with an 18-week on-site construction programme, ensuring the school could occupy the building in time for the new September school term.
