Channing School

Sports Hall at Channing Junior School

The temporary Sports Hall at the Junior School has been a real boost to the school this term and the delivery of curricular PE has continued, with a significant improvement in facilities for the girls. This represents a huge stepping-stone to what we can expect next year when our permanent Sports facilities are available.

Case Study

About this job
North London based Channing School is undergoing an £11 million development project that will result in a new sports hall and performing arts centre.
With the redevelopment taking two-years, the all girls school still needed to offer students a sports curriculum as well as needing space for assemblies and an exam hall.

Requirement
Channing School needed a structure that could be in place until 2015 to ensure that P.E. lessons continue while the work on a new facility is undertaken. It needed to operate in the same way as a ‘normal’ sports hall with no disruption to the children.

Building
The 600 square metre temporary building has been fitted with specialist flooring that has all the markings to be used for various sports such as netball, football, and the like.

Challenge
While the impact of the new building has been minimal on the students, aged four to 18 years, it
has taken a considerable amount of planning to get the temporary hall in place.
“From the initial free site survey, we found that the differential in heights on the site was considerable,” explains Scott Jameson, Managing Director at Spaciotempo. “We brought in
Cerda Planning, not only to help with the initial investigation of the site but also to assist in gaining
full planning permission for the temporary sports hall.

Because of where the school is located, we had to deal with two councils and Cerda was integral in
getting the plans finalised and allowing us to deliver the project on time and within budget.”
