Wellington Primary School
AWW was appointed by Neilcott Construction to develop the design and support the delivery of this new build 3 FE junior school in Hounslow. The site lies directly under the Heathrow flight path and adjacent to the Piccadilly line, presenting significant acoustic design challenges.
The design team also worked closely with the end users to select hard-wearing external finishes that could incorporate the school’s colours, and to ensure a robust access control and security strategy; areas of particular concern for any inner city school.
A cross laminated timber structural solution was selected at an early stage to respond to the extremely challenging programme. Work started on site in August 2016 and the project was completed on budget and ahead of programme, ready for the September 2017 academic year.
