The completion of Technology Centre for St Lawrence College

We were appointed in to act as designer, project manager and contract administrators for the independent school, St Lawrence College Ramsgate, to assist with their new Science, Art and Design Technology Centre.

How we helped

We developed the planning drawing, put together the project team, tender the works and managed the project through to completion. We dealt with all the specification, specialist laboratory equipment and furniture, cost control and day-to-day project management. Phase 1 included the excavation and reduction of the site area requiring the ground to be reduced by 6m in depth and the removal of approximately 10,000m3 of ground. This had to be dug out and transported through the school quadrangle during the six-week summer period. Phase 2 commenced in summer of 2017 with a year’s construction period.

How we achieved this

The new building creates 2,774m2 of teaching and workshops space over basement, ground and second floors providing two fully equipped DT workshops, eight science laboratories, and two art classrooms in a very modern open space with curtain walling and terraced open areas.
