Dovers Green SNSC


Client Brief

Surrey County Council decided to upgrade facilities at their Schools which currently had Special Educational Needs (SEN) Units, in order to improve services and facilities to cater for the increasing number of children exhibiting special needs such as autism and ADHD. The Head Teachers at Dovers Green approached Malcolm to design a proposed scheme; we needed to re-design this at the last minute after concerns arose regarding staffing levels.

Key Issues

  • Out-dated and ill equipped SEN Unit
  • Works to be completed by September 2012
  • Congested School Site

What We Did

The design consisted of extending the admin facilities to the front of the School, including a new corridor to the Hall. The old offices and circulation space would then be incorporated into the Special Needs Support Centre, to improve facilities including a newly refurbished main classroom, group room, sensory room and calming room.

Completion of the scheme successfully took place in September.

“We have worked with Malcolm on a number of projects at the school and had no hesitation in approaching him to design & project manage this important scheme.”
