The new extension to Wilberforce House at The Study Preparatory School will provide new classrooms and a new performance hall. The new spaces build on our existing experiences of constructing a steel frame with cross laminated timber (CLT) floor and roof panels. The CLT is exposed on the underside and will form an integral part of the architecture. The site is live with very little external space and it has been an important criteria for the project to be completed on site within 12 months. The school occupies a sensitive site within the Wimbledon West conservation area and Wilberforce House, the Octagon is Grade II Listed.
