Great Bookham School Completed

The major refurbishment project was completed at Great Bookham School, on behalf of Surrey County Council ahead of the start of the Summer Term last week.

 

Works were extensive in the live school and involved the complete strip out of eight washrooms within both the junior and infant areas. Within each washroom new sanitaryware was provided together with fixtures and fittings, floor coverings, wall linings, ventilation, lighting, associated M&E connections and decorations.

 

So that the school could continue their operations as normal, these washroom works were carried out over four distinct phases.  To ensure the process was delivered seamlessly, extensive planning was formulated collaboratively with the school to ensure safe and secure segregation with pupils, whilst keeping emergency routes clear and minimising disruption.

 

Additional internal works involved the installation of two new internal veneer faced, glazed, double fire doors along the school main corridor and circulation area.  This provides the school with acoustic privacy to improve sound quality in each zone.

 

Structural alterations in two locations were made to remove external facing windows and replace these with full height aluminium glazed double doors, maximising the impact of natural daylight sustainably.

 

External works involved the removal of unwanted old fencing, sheds and the top layer of ground vegetation.  Following this a rubber crumb play area was installed and the whole of the remaining area was wild flower seeded to improve local  biodiversity and provide bees, butterflies and other pollinators with food throughout the year.

 

In other external areas drainage repairs were made and 100 meters of new fencing was erected to carefully segregate pupils away from the pond and other areas.
