Top of the Class in Richmond

In just 10 weeks on site, Oakmont have completed two reconfiguration projects for Richmond West Schools Trust.

Twickenham Academy and Hampton High have both undergone major adaptions to the existing teaching spaces to provide layouts suited to the evolving needs of the schools.

The original curriculum and previous teaching styles followed by the Academy were arranged around 20 pupils per class across three adjoining classes. These have now been superseded by a more traditional curriculum of 30 pupils and, as such the classrooms have been enlarged to suit. In addition, the large open working spaces have been split into smaller classrooms to fulfil this teaching model.

The works predominately covered the removal of existing plasterboard and glass partitions and reconfiguration to form 20 new teaching spaces and a science lab. Adaptions to the mechanical and electrical services, including the provision of new combined lighting radiant panels, also fell under Oakmont’s remit.

The majority of the works were completed over the last few weeks of the summer term and school holiday ensuring that works were completed for the new autumn term.

This is the second education project that Oakmont have completed over the summer period. Both were successfully delivered to ensure completed facilities for the returning students.
