Following the successful completion and hand over of Notre Dame School GJBS were engaged by HMGoG to Design and Build a state of the art ST Anne’s Upper Primary School, which incorporated specialist teaching and sensory areas specifically for the LSF Classes. Also, within the requirements was a modern Sports Hall facility that can be utilised by both schools and the general public, this project was completed within 11 months of the first pile being driven.
St Anne’s School is a three-storey reinforced concrete structure which comprised of both traditionally reinforced concrete structural design and an area that required constructing using post tensioned slab, allowing larger internal open areas. The school is situated at podium level, over a new carpark with an excess of 300 spaces, the School has been designed to enhance the teaching experience of the core age groups, with enhanced sound proofing throughout to ensure the ambient sounds of Winston Churchill Avenue do not distract the pupils. The school also benefits from 100% wi-fi coverage to assist the teaching activities and to support HMGoG’s commitment to modern teaching techniques and equipment.
In addition to the provision of the new school which compliments its adjacent school, at podium level there is also a brand-new Adventure Playground and football / basketball pitch for the use of the residents of the Laguna Estate.
