Work starts on Levitt Bernstein’s Girls School in Manchester

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PROJECT DATA + PLANS] Work has begun on Levitt Bernstein’s new junior school in Manchester

The 1,710m² building at Withington Girls’ School will link to the existing senior school via a new communal hub created by roofing over a previously external space.

The new junior school will form the western elevation of the site overlooking the school’s playing fields.

According to the architects the classroom plans were generated using the golden ratio, and ‘creating a space of classical proportions’.

The building will be constructed using modern methods of construction (MMC) with a pre-cast concrete frame.

The scheme is the first phase of a ten year masterplan for the school which was originally built in 1890.

The scheme is set to complete in August 2015.
