Drainage and structural design for conversion of office block into a school
St Jerome School
GSE was appointed to undertake the drainage design and the structural design for the conversion of an existing 1980’s office block in Harrow. The office block was to be converted into a school on behalf of the St Jerome C of E Bilingual School.
GSE were appointed in two stages. Firstly, to assess the existing structure and its suitability for the proposed change of use. Secondly, to undertake the structural design for the proposed works.
A detailed design was done for the new drainage required to accommodate the change of use and the proposed extensions to the existing building. The structural design for the proposed alterations was then carried out in conjunction with the design team. Although the design programme was very tight, the deadline for each stage of the design process was achieved by GSE.
