Headington Girls School, ICT Building, Oxford

The new three story ICT building is located on the schools Headington, Oxford campus and is part of a rolling programme of work, this follows the music block constructed by Kingerlee the previous year.

The load bearing masonry structure is constructed off CFA piled foundations and ground beams supporting a reinforced concrete ground floor slab. Upper floors are precast concrete and accessed by precast concrete staircases.
A new passenger lift serves all three floors. The external elevations match the existing building stock with double glazed aluminium doors and windows. Internal walls are finished with painted plaster work and pre-finished oak joinery.
The building’s design provides flexibility for the schools future needs, with classrooms designed to be sub divided by means of dummy doors and provision for alternative teaching positions.
The building is positioned into the slope of the existing ground and accommodates changes in levels with steps down to the lower areas along with hard landscaping and paving to its perimeter.
