Gordon’s School, Boarding House Refurbishment
26 October 2020
Client: Gordon’s School
The project involved the conversion of the existing head teacher’s residence and adjoining former chaplain’s house into Year 7 boarding accommodation. Care was taken with the refurbishment to retain many of the traditional features such as the Victorian stained glass windows and staircase.
The works included internal remodelling and reconfiguration to form new common rooms, an office, changing rooms and toilets on the ground floor and new pupil dormitories and bathrooms to the first floor. In addition, two separate staff residences were created for the house parents and a new two storey extension was constructed to provide a link to the boarding house at ground and first floor levels.
New lighting, power and Wi-Fi connectivity was installed throughout. The mechanical works included new boilers to provide heating and hot water to all areas and new ventilation to specific areas as required. External works included landscaping the surrounding grounds to suit the new layout plus the provision of access for disabled users of the building including new ramps in place of steps.
