Project Overview.

Churcher’s College is an existing independent fee-paying day school for both girls and boys aged from 11 to 18.

The school was founded in 1722 by Richard Churcher to educate local boys in the skills needed for service in the merchant navy and is located in Ramshill, Petersfield.

The project comprises the demolition of the existing twostorey music block and single-storey Design and Technology Block.

The scheme is in two phases spanning two years. The Design and Technology building is to be demolished first and rebuilt with additional space to house a new English Department, whilst the adjacent Music Department remains in operation.

Following completion, the music block will then be demolished and replaced. This phasing ensures that at least one building remains available for students during the whole construction process.

The buildings are of steel frame construction supported on concrete pad and trench foundations. The ground floor slab is 225mm deep beam and block, whilst the first floor is a composite metal deck.

The building envelope is a mixture of façade treatments, primarily brickwork with cladding and brise soliel. Phase 1 has a flat single ply roof and Phase 2 has a tiled pitched roof.
