Kingswinford GM School
This large, open plan staffroom block totalling over 150sq m was erected quickly and efficiently with little disruption to the school. Danzer overcame the difficulties of placing this unit within a courtyard and carried out extensive external works including a disabled-access ramp with banisters, hard landscaped courtyard, patio and decked picnic area to give easy access to services.
The spacious interior features a fitted kitchen, WCs/Disabled WCs with concealed cisterns, showers and associated pipe work, and part suspended ceilings in corridors. The result is a structure which is both fit for purpose and aesthetically pleasing throughout.
