Northaw Church of England School is part of the Diocese of St Albans and is located in a rural village just outside Potters Bar.
This spring Danzer Ltd has manufactured and installed a 4 module Linkpak NG building. This provides an additional 69m2 teaching area as well as WC and disabled toilet facilities and a sliding partition which allows the space to be divided at a moment’s notice.
The school required a practical solution to create the new flexible teaching space and the market-leading Linkpak NG product, which is fully compliant with building regulations, was commissioned. As it is manufactured off site it provided a speedy build programme for the school. The new building features a host of energy saving devices to improve efficiency and reduce running costs including double glazing and CFC free wall insulation.
The building was also designed to be as sympathetic to the rural surroundings as possible and features details such as Boston Brick Red external cladding in fine grade aggregate panels.
Access to the site was tight and so the installation team had to “park” part of the building at South Mimms services and then ferry them section by section on to site. The unit also needed to be transferred across a block paved yard and so a cushioned underlay was placed under trackway to avoid any damage to the paving.
The building took three weeks to be manufactured off site before being installed in just ten days.
