Highgate Junior School in North London set for site extension
Highgate Junior School in North London is set to extend and seriously improve its existing site by adding a whole new section and revamping an existing one, a news report in the local media has just revealed.
Wates Construction will be the main contractor in charge of building the new 4,320 sq m facility for 350 pupils aged 7 to 11 years, new features comprising teaching spaces and a main school hall to replace the Cholmeley House library and teaching block, which will be demolished as part of the project.
Construction will commence this month and will also include extensive refurbishment and re-roofing works to Highgate Junior School’s Ingleholme Building, one of only a few remaining 19th century ‘villa’ houses in Highgate.
Designed by Architype, the scheme will incorporate energy efficiency measures to enhance sustainability. Contributing to an expected BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating, features will include photovoltaic panels and a green roof to encourage biodiversity. The building will also follow Passivhaus principles and utilise triple glazing to all windows to improve building insulation.
