Willow Wood Primary School

Value: £500,000Architects: Spring Architects

The part demolition of existing classrooms, new extensions and internal remodelling transformed this school within a tight budget, leaving staff and pupils delighted with the outcome.


Demolition and refurbishment works were carried out during school holidays to fit around school operations and avoid any pupils or staff in close vicinity. This allowed us to clearly segregate our site from the live school environment once the new build extension to the nursery commenced.

During the pre-construction stage, we worked collaboratively with the school to finalise the design and create significant cost savings, adding value wherever possible to achieve the desired quality.

Community and student engagement was also integral to the scheme’s success. We attended parents evening; carried out school assemblies to educate the pupils on health and safety; implemented a viewing platform for the pupils to follow their school’s progress; and supported the school in raising the profile of the construction works.

“We are so lucky to have this amazing space to learn in, it’s a teacher’s dream. Thanks for your support with engaging our community – it means a great deal.”
