Synopsis

In this presentation we would look at the design and offsite construction of a new state-of-the-art academy in Slough and how it was delivered several months ahead of programme.

Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy is a £20m education campus and one of the largest ever modular schools to be built in the UK. It demonstrates a number of new innovations which contributed to its early completion – an unprecedented 17 weeks ahead of programme, giving this new free school the benefit of even earlier occupation.

Lynch Hill is a 1,140-place academy specialising in science, technology, engineering and maths, and was built by principal contractor and offsite specialist, The McAvoy Group for the Learning Alliance Academy Trust. In recognition of its success, the project has already been shortlisted for five industry awards. This three-storey 8,750m2 building is an exemplar offsite education project which has a design inspired by the world-leading Harvard Business School.

The presentation would consider:

– the pre-construction challenges
– the design criteria and brief – particularly to encourage collaborative learning
– the technical advancements and innovations in offsite construction
– the perspective of the head teacher and the client.

We could also include a short video tour of the building and an interview with the head teacher.
