Turing House School, Twickenham

Delivered through the Department for Education Free Schools Framework, Turing House is a 1050 pupil school managed by the Russell Educational Trust.

The secondary school with sixth form and sports centre, was built using our ‘Configure’ system – developed for our work on the DfE framework. The three-storey building is constructed from a steel frame with precast concrete planks and a combination of brickwork and rainscreen cladding panels.

The site was in a very sensitive location and extensive surveys were required for protected species, air quality and acoustic impacts. Community liaison was required throughout the planning process and construction. It was also adjacent to a railway line and we had the responsibility of managing construction risks associated with Transport for London’s asset protection.

The project also included road realignments, pedestrian crossings and bus route provisions. The new school, which is run by the Russell Education Trust, offers contemporary, state of the art facilities for students and staff.

 

“I can’t praise B+K highly enough for their engagement with and delivery of this scheme. In particular their on-site team  were outstanding. Thank you to everyone involved from day one onwards. You were head and shoulders the best bidder and by far the best contractor I’ve had the pleasure of working with.”

Colin Mackinlay, Chief Executive of the Russell Education Trust
