Gilbert-Ash takes £31m London St Paul’s junior school job

Gilbert-Ash has clinched a £31m contract to build a new junior school at St Paul’s independent school in West London.

Designed by architect HawkinsBrown, the project will consist of two new buildings.

The largest, Junior School West, will involve building a three-storey block to house teaching and changing facilities.

The other Junior School East will be a two-storey facility comprising a teaching block and double-height hall.

Gilbert-Ash managing director, Ray Hutchinson, said: “St Paul’s School is steeped in history and has been providing first-class education for boys for hundreds of years.

“The project will ensure this legacy continues in Barnes for generations to come.”

Targeting a BREEAM rating of excellent, the new buildings will be heated with air-source heat pumps with photovoltaic panels on the roof which will also house a green roof system.

Interior fit-out plans include acoustic wall panels and slatted timber acoustic panels and lining, while flooring will vary from engineered hardwood flooring, linoleum and carpeted areas.
