Welcome to 'Dartmouth Community College' where a new purpose designed sculptured studio was constructed to signify the schools recent award of Specialist Arts Status.

The project provided a shop window to the most interesting and creative arts projects whilst rejuvinating the existing school entrance.

The key brief from the client was as follows...

  • To work extremely closely with the project Architect and the school to deliver the building on time and within an agreed budget
  • To carry out the work in accordance with CDM regulations
  • The copper roof was a 'must have' whilst the rest of the contract was constantly being reviewed to keep the scheme within budget
  • Complying with the latest Building Regulation requirements

The work consisted of...

  • A traditional block work cavity wall construction with the front elevation being slightly curved to follow the line of the existing road
  • A single ply membrane roof wrapped with a vertical copper fascia
  • Full height powder coated windows to maximise the use of natural light for the students
  • Fixing cedar cladding to the side elevations
