Science and Technology Faculty, Claremont

Located on steeply sloping wooded ground within Claremont Fan Court School’s 90-acre historic site, the new Science and Technology Faculty building is the first phase of our comprehensive long term development plan for the school. The site is within the Green Belt, close to Grade I listed buildings and within the Grade I listed landscape.

The design includes major extension and refurbishment of an existing single-storey building, a new workshop building and refurbishment of the historic Generator House adjacent. These are linked together by covered ways and a bridge to provide a unified new faculty.
