Project Description

This project involved the construction of a new, £4 million four storey boarding house within the grounds of the Whitgift School.

Whitgift is a public, independent day school in South Croydon ,which boards both pupils and staff in senior and junior common rooms. Boarding house facilities include a library, laundry rooms, study rooms, sick bays and internal and external social areas.

Special consideration was made to retain the location of the war memorial, placing the new boarding house slightly offset at the main entrance of the school. The environmental impact of the building was also considered, resulting in 10% of the energy usage being generated by renewable resources.
