Gt Missenden C of E School
Contour were appointed to explore how the school could be expanded to accommodate an additional 2 KS2 classrooms, group rooms and associated support accommodation.
The proposals had to take into account complex planning issues as the school is situated within Green Belt and a conservation area. It is also adjacent to an established residential area of special character and a public amenity open space.
The preferred solution was to replace an inefficient 2 storey pavilion with complex internal levels with an infill 2 storey block which better linked changing site and building levels. The opportunity was taken to include a lift, strategically placed, to serve four different internal floor levels, thus solving pre-existing DDA inadequacies.
2 No KS2 classrooms
2 No Group Rooms
Proposals were presented to parents and the local community at a public consultation and received unanimous support.
Planning permission was granted in early 2017.
