Location: Holte, Mayfield and Lozells School, Birmingham
DHA Architects have so far obtained planning approval and tender prices for 2 projects at this school to increase the provision of indoor activity and soft play spaces.
Due to the location of the two spaces and the impact they will have on the running of the school, two different approaches were adopted to the design.
The first, a steel frame building using lightweight materials which can be easily craned into a lower ground floor area, minimising the use of heavy machinery and noise on site. The second, a complete off-site modular construction which, once completed, is delivered to site and "plugged in," thus minimising time on site.
