The Crypt School
SEN Teaching and Vocational Training
This two storey teaching block at The Crypt School was designed to cater for the expanding science department. It provides two additional science labs; a robotics and engineering classroom; and three general teaching classrooms. Circulation spaces are generously sized and contribute to the lightness and openness of the building.
Due to the constraints of a very tight programme, the school decided to opt for a modular building system. The building was put together in the contractor’s yard and then brought to site in sections before being craned into position and bolted together. The building arrived on site in January and the school was handed the keys to the finished building during the second week of April. The preparation and planning for this type of project requires a meticulous level of detail.
