Littleover School - New Humanities Block, Derby

 

Littleover School - New Humanities Block

The project comprised of a new 2 storey teaching block which provides 10 additional classrooms, break out areas, ground floor toilet facilities, central open plan stair core, disabled access via a platform lift and external paved and landscaped areas.

The construction consisted of a retaining wall at ground floor level, structural steel frame core, and precast concrete floor and roof planks supported off structural masonry with external facing brick façade.

The new two 2 Humanities block was constructed within a live school environment and as such it was key that the new construction activities did not affect the day to day running of the school. This was ensured by scheduling material and plant deliveries outside of the schools key arrival and departure times for the children, as well as providing separate parking facilities for site operatives / personnel.
