denbigh school engineering facility

This project formed one of the many 14-19 Diploma projects commissioned providing facilities for a new qualification that combines theoretical study and practical experience and forms part of the reform programme being rolled out in the coming years. The proposed facility at Denbigh School provides two dedicated engineering workshops, a heavy machinery zone and three teaching spaces equating to approximately 400m².

The rectilinear form of the building was driven by the site constraints and its requirements to link with the existing facilities. The robust palette of materials reflects the building use and the exposed internal soffits and exposed services maintain a engineering feel to the building. The Kalwall high level perimeter glazing system provides good levels of natural light and high levels of solar control.
