The construction of the Greenwich Free School was funded through the Scape Framework.

The development comprises the re-development of the vacant site of Adair House, a disused 1930’s nursing home, in order to create a new 700 pupil secondary school.
The project involves the retention and refurbishment of the historic Adair House building with the removal of the later additions. Careful assessment of the existing building, including load testing, is required to ensure an economical scheme.

The new build structure comprises a four storey steel frame with concrete floor slabs over steel decking, acting compositely with the steel support beams, on pad foundations.

A tight budget and short programme are important drivers in the design, which has been carried out using a BIM model in REVIT.
