Description: Extension, Remodelling and Refurbishment
The London Borough of Wandsworth appointed Lengard to carry out a two form entry expansion to this occupied primary school. Beatrix Potter is one of three schools enlarged by Lengard over a two-year period for Wandsworth.
Works involved the construction of a two storey building with six classrooms, the removal of existing temporary classrooms, the creation of drama and art studios, works to the playground and creation of a new MUGA games area.
Sustainable features included the installation of composite windows maximising natural light and the fitting of surface water attenuation tanks to limit the impact of flash floods.
Beatrix Potter is located within a residential area and our site team carried out regular letter drops advising neighbours of disruptive work and large deliveries. Works were carried out during term time and deliveries were arranged to avoid pupils arriving and leaving school. We held weekly meetings with the head teacher, maintaining effective communication throughout the project.
