About this project

Heathland School (Photo 1,2,3) Footprint Architects were appointed to design a scheme for the refurbishment and extension of Heathlands Primary School located at West Howe, Bournemouth. The existing accommodation included a nursery, reception, Sure Start centre and primary classrooms with adjacent admin and staff rooms; all set out over single-storey ground floor level only. The primary school now incorporates a specialist Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) unit within its site and existing buildings. Two new modular buildings have been constructed on the site providing additional accommodation for both the primary school and ASD unit. The existing school has been refurbished externally with new windows and doors, and new roof coverings where required. Internal refurbishment includes re-modelling of the classroom wing and redecoration of the majority of the existing school. The existing annex to the south has been demolished. Refurbishment of existing services includes the heating and hot and cold water systems. The Project was completed March 2014. “Footprint Architects have performed above our expectations. The team are up to date with the latest technology developments and have innovative and fresh ideas. They delivered an excellent scheme and the school is overwhelmed with pride and compliments. Bournemouth Borough Council will certainly recommend their services and would love to have the opportunity to work with them again.” Client Project Manager, Bournemouth Borough Council Woodland School (Photo 4) Footprint Architects were called to provide a new school development, carved into an existing woodland on the edge of the New Forest The design uses the existing woodland as the inspiration for appearance, scale and cladding for the proposed extension. The new building provides a backdrop to the woodland screening that surrounds the site, whilst being subservient to the unique scale and form of the sites existing buildings. Weymouth College (Engineering Centre of Excellence) (Photo 5) Footprint Architects were employed to develop a feasibility proposal for Weymouth Colleges new Engineering Centre of Excellence. The concept of the proposals centred around creating an internal street that forms the heart of the campus, with the new forms responding in scale and shape to the neighbouring residential properties to reduce its impact on them, while still achieving the large space requirements of the college. It will tie the main campus with the 3 primary departments sports, construction and engineering. It will be a showpiece for the college displaying the aspirations for a learning centre of excellence with engineering being at the forefront.
