Architects line up for Southwark schools work
Hawkins\Brown, Haverstock, Cottrell & Vermeulen, Hayhurst and Co and Maccreanor Lavington have all won work on schools in Southwark
Hawkins\Brown has been appointed to work on six schools, while Haverstock has won the the South London borough’s £31million expansion project.
Haverstock is leading a team made up of Cottrell and Vermeulen, Hayhurst and Co and Maccreanor Lavington. The practices will be working on the extension, remodelling and refurbishment of four schools and two new-build primary schools beginning on site in 2015.
Hawkins\Brown’s £30million project will see the practice design two new schools and extend and refurbish another four in the London borough of Southwark.
The practice has proposed tackling the schools’ problems through a ‘kit of parts’ approach which can be adapted to each site.
The new-build at Cherry Garden School will provide space for 80 school children with special educational needs. While at Ivydale School a new building across from the existing school will double its capacity.
Morag Morrison, partner at Hawkins\Brown said: ‘Our aim is to create a kit of parts that can be adapted for each site, providing Southwark Council with new sustainable and cost effective schools.’
Claire Barton, partner at Haverstock, added: ‘We are extremely excited about leading this project and working together with other high quality school architects to provide outstanding solutions for London Borough of Southwark. We took this collaborative approach to ensure all the schools got an individual service.’
