New design & technology block for Wiltshire secondary school

St Joseph’s Catholic School in Laverstock is committed to the formation of character and the acquisition of a value system that will enable young people to live life to the full. Its a vibrant and dynamic school with high expectations and great ambitions, and this is reflected in the new design and technology block that has recently been completed. 

Increasing pupil numbers

The modern, clean and energy efficient new block will provide the school with much needed additional facilities to cope with increasing pupil numbers.

The new state of the art Design and Technology block was finished one month ahead of programme and both pupils and teachers are delighted with their new facility. The building contains two IT classrooms, along with specially designed food and design technology spaces. 

Project management

Hookway undertook the Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Principal Designer roles on the project, which was designed by Bristol based Architects, O’Leary Goss.

Testimonial

“Our old sports hall has now been transformed into a multi-purpose performance space with a professional stage lighting and sound rig. What a transformation! Tom Bishop from Hookway listened very carefully to our requirements and then went about designing the new Norton Hill Arts Theatre. With cherry panelling and sound absorbent materials the main room has amazing acoustics, perfect for concerts and performances alike.”

“I lose count of the amount of positive comments we receive from visitors on how great the new build looks and it really fits in well with the existing building.”

“The whole project has been a complete success from start to finish. Hookway and the builders (HBC) were a pleasure to deal with and the project management was highly professional.”
