University College School –

Client: University College School
Architect: Ed Toovey Architects

The project involved the refurbishment of the existing Science building, together with the construction of a new external steel framed balcony structure and a new Cloister building


The Cloister building was designed with traditional load bearing solid masonry walls, bearing on solid concrete strip foundations and supporting a timber joisted flat roof, with steel beams and trimmers around rooflights. Due to the schools requirements to maintain an open plan below the balcony, stability of the balcony was designed with cantilevered columns from foundation level, supported on r.c. pile caps on screwed helical piles


The project has been completed early 2017
