A development of new classrooms using Celcon Plus Blocks with the H+H Thin-Joint System of construction.

H+H UK’s Plus Blocks using the Thin-Joint system meet the acoustic requirements internally and thermally insulates the external walls for a fast-track construction programme. After using on the first phase, this construction provided the advantage of speed against phase two’s summer holiday deadline.

The extension provides eight new classrooms to develop the college’s specialism in teaching the sciences to 11-16 year-olds. The first phase to create five classrooms over a 700m2 floorspace was completed within 37 weeks by the Christmas holiday of 2008. The second phase to create three classrooms over a 450m2 floorspace was completed within 27 weeks by the start of the summer holiday.
