Focus School, Kenley

  • The project centred around the creation of a school from a disused RAF workshop building (1,400m²) on the historic airfield at Kenley in Surrey
  • Created a school environment for 140 pupils including self-directed learning facility for GCSE and A-Level years
  • The existing site had no incoming services so HDR | Hurley Palmer Flatt reviewed utility capacity requirements and applications
  • The building is Grade II listed with some single glazed windows, which posed Part L and energy efficiency challenges
  • A large assembly hall was created which required structural alterations and detailed space conditioning assessments
  • The project required close attention to services co-ordination, plant access and fire compartmentation to satisfy building control and environmental officers
