Tolworth Infant and Junior School, Kingston
Client name:Royal Borough of Kingston
Keegans were awarded the project management and design of works required for the demolition of the Tolworth Infant and Junior Schools existing dining block and its replacement with a new dining facility, a new Children’s Centre and a ‘bulge’ classroom to serve both the schools and the greater community.
The new facilities are to blend aesthetically with the existing main school building while creating a positive, safe and secure environment for learning incorporating good ventilation and natural light.
The project will demonstrate the principles of sustainability and design for ease of maintenance and low whole life costs; and it will meet the DCSF 60% Zero Carbon Emission target. It will also comply with statutory documents in order to meet DfES requirements such as the Education Reform Act 1988, School Premises Regulations, Disability Discrimination Act 1995; Building Regulations, Special Education Needs and Disability Act 2001.
