The new science block at The Lenham School is a state-of-the-art STEM building with a GIFA of 1134m2 set over two floors. The new building, will provide students with a vibrant and exciting environment in which to study Science.
The innovative design of the building was by Architectural practice the Bailey Partnership and Streif worked with main contractor Baxall Construction Ltd to deliver the project for Kent County Council. Kent County Council have been an early adopter of modern methods of construction and this was another project where the benefits of manufacturing offsite, such as reduced programme, cost certainty and reduced H&S risk were realised through the use of the Streif closed panel timber building system.
The stylish form of the building finished externally with contrasting coloured insulated render system at ground and first floor give the building a very contemporary look standing out from the existing School buildings. The classrooms are light and spacious due to vaulted ceilings at first floor and the large window arrays creating the perfect environment for learning.
Hopefully this will help to inspire lots of budding new scientists!
