- Development Wing D extension on top of the existing Sports Hall to accommodate additional general as well as specialist classrooms and workshop terrace.
Jewish Community Secondary School accommodates approximately 1300 students within its large complex of an overall site area of 2.3ha which includes playing fields and car parking. Wing D is located within north-east part of the building, large part of which is occupied by 2 - storey's high Sports Hall. New extension with gross external floor area of 675m2 has been placed on top of the Hall in place of Roof Terrace. The extension contains two General Classrooms, Design Technology, Art and Information & Communication Technology Classroom as well as associated storage and fire escape staircase.
The critical challenge of this project was to provide compliant detail design in timely manner while accommodating value engineering solutions and meeting complex acoustic fire strategy design especially regarding external fire staircase while dealing with its overseas cladding supplier.
