Thomas Lord Audley School and Language College, Colchester

Project: Thomas Lord Audley School and Language College, Colchester

Client: Thomas Lord Audley School / Essex County Council

Contract Value: £120,000

The practice have carried out 3 separate projects at Thomas Lord Audley School and Language College.

The first project (2001) involved the creation of a Modern Languages department for which the school gained specialist status. An existing 3 storey classroom building was converted and remodelled to support a specialist language curriculum.

A second project (2006) involved the conversion and refurbishment of an existing workshop to form a new conference room with associated storage and catering facilities. The suite is used by the School and by external organisations with whom the School works.

Our most recent project (2007), pictured, involved remodelling the existing reception and altering and refurbishing the main office suite. Improvements were made to the main elevation of the reception block with new curtain walling set over crisp new brickwork. A brise soleil prevents summer heating.

A glazed canopy offers visitors an easily identified and improved main entrance to the School.
