Charterhouse School was looking to redesign its existing science & maths teaching facilities, which are based in a Grade II listed building within the historic core of the school campus, which itself is located within the Green Belt. The aim of redesigning the facilities was to provide additional teaching space and to bring their current laboratories up to modern day standards. As part of this redevelopment the school also wanted to provide a central hub space for the academic core of the school campus. The school’s architects Design Engine had developed a draft scheme which involved the sensitive refurbishment of the existing building and the addition of a complementary modern wing to the building.
ASP was instructed to establish contact with the relevant parties within the local planning authority and guide the project team through the pre-application and application processes. As part of this ASP had to brief the relevant consultants on their scope of works and prepare the relevant planning submissions.
Following the approval of the scheme ASP liaised with the local planning authority as to how to do deal with the pre-commencement conditions given the phased approach to the construction of the scheme. ASP coordinated the project team in preparation and submission the relevant condition information for Phase 1 of the project to allow Phase 1 of the project to begin construction.
The scheme has since been constructed and has been awarded an RIBA South East Award 2019. Click here to read more about it.
