Halliday Clark completes elevated Learning Link for Bradford Grammar
[First look + plans] Halliday Clark has created this cathedral-like bridge as part of a £3.9 million extension programme at Bradford Grammar School in West Yorkshire.
The zinc-clad, elevated Learning Link joins the existing 1930s school building to a 1970s science block and 1980s library across the site.
The scheme also creates a new chemistry and social sciences building, pictured above.
Practice founder Adam Clark said the 70m-long, steel-framed ‘linear route’ had been inspired by a TGV train in France.
He said: ‘This is a substantial building; it is not just a flying corridor. It can be used as a gallery and a dining space. However, this covered route has allowed the school to be much more flexible with its timetable.’
The project was completed, during term time, under a guaranteed maximum price contract in just 12 months.
