Infill Building Reigate School

Client Brief

Malcolm was approached by the School to put forward a feasibility study, which provided a solution to a number of points affecting the smooth running of the School. Due to the rapid expansion of the School as a result of its excellent OFSTED results, they found they were short of adaptable teaching space, welfare areas for use at lunchtime and office space.

Key Issues

  • Lack of Adaptable Teaching Space
  • Overcrowded Catering Facilities
  • Poorly Utilised Internal Courtyard Space

What We Did

Following the feasibility study, a currently under-utilised area of the School was selected, but it was clear that all areas of shortfall could not be accommodated. The School decided that their primary need was catering for overflow and adaptable teaching areas - accordingly the design allows for 2 classrooms separated with an acoustic folding wall to provide maximum flexibility together with WCs and ancillary storage accommodation.

The project was successfully completed ready for the September intake.

“We are very pleased with the new building and look forward to incorporating the innovatively designed teaching space in our plans for the new school year.”
