Project Summary

At Fulham Cross Girls’ School, the works comprised the demolition of an old 1970’s science block and delivery of a state-of-the-art science building and gymnasium with bespoke science labs, staff rooms, offices and a double-height gym.  The new steel frame building with precast concrete planks on the first floor and roof and external brick and clad facade provides 5 new laboratories, preparation room, sports hall, changing rooms, toilets and staff room. The building includes PV panels and attenuation tank.

The main gym complements the all-weather outdoor facilities with associated changing rooms, storage facilities and offices, and capacity for a variety of indoor sports including hockey, netball, dance, and rowing machine activity.

Fulham Cross Girls’ School new block was handed over successfully on budget in March 2020, safely and without delay following the government guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are proud to be working closely with the Department for Education on both Fulham Cross Girls’ School and Fulham College Boys’ School on this series of important projects, helping to reshape the local area into a hub of excellence for STEM subjects.”

“Managing the handover of the project during the Covid-19 outbreak whilst still maintaining excellent communication and quality standards was impressive. We have felt like we have had a clear picture and understanding of what the project would look like from an early design stage and that has carried the whole way through to completion on site. The team delivered the project on time despite various changes in dates and the circumstances.”

“Day to day contact has been exceptional. It’s honest and upfront. What Morgan Sindall say they will do they do. Relationship between the school and the site team is fantastic and has been really successful. I can only thank you on behalf of the school for the absolute professionalism of you all and the appreciation for you always going the extra mile.”
