£25m as part of Enfield Batch
Surface To Air Architects have been appointed for George Spicer Primary School. This project is part of the delivery of the wider Phase 1 Enfield Primary Expansion Programme. Surface to Air Architects are the Lead Architectural Consultants for five of these projects.
The new building for George Spicer comprises of three classroom wings with a central connecting
hall space. The single storey building and its external learning landscape and playgrounds create a stimulating environment for the four form entry Early Years Students (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils).
The external cladding is designed from a cherry wood natural veneer, which sets the building comfortably
into its natural surroundings. The building was fabricated using off-site construction. The hall was
constructed using a pre-fabricated timber structural solution, and the classroom wings were constructed
using a volumetric pre-fabricated solution.
The design was created in collaboration with the school at every design phase through client engagement meetings and workshops.
