Planning consent has just been granted for a Primary school project in Fairford, Gloucestershire. The scheme includes a significant new building to provide 8 new classrooms, group rooms, school hall and a new administrative and entrance hub. A 2 class integrated nursery is incorporated into the design to provide facilities for age 2-11 children.
The design is intended to be sensitive to the Cotswold setting using stone walls and a pitched roof form, with cladding infill panels providing a vibrant and colourful contemporary appearance.
The scheme also provides a new staff car park and various highways improvement measures, internal remodelling of the existing school building and a new full production kitchen.
The main build project is due to start on site in October following on from the enabling works that are currently being constructed on site.
