Mono - Classroom extension - Southall

Client Name:

Dormers Wells Junior School


Classroom extension


4m by 7m


Dormers Well Junior school, like so many, required more classroom and staffroom space but instead of a standalone solution, they envisaged extending the existing school, to better utilise some rough ground at the back of two existing rooms. Education Spaces offer complete flexibility in how we create the additional space required by a school and are experienced in extensions as well as stand-alone buildings. The plot of land the school had in mind looked out over the playground with fields beyond and so it was important the design capitalised on these inspiring views. As the images show, an existing external wall became an internal partition between two classroom spaces with a connecting door between and glazed double doors to the outside with high security five point locking. As with all our buildings, this extension was constructed using SIPs panels, so is highly thermally efficient and swift to build, minimising disruption to teaching.

Our Solution

  • Glazing: Large picture windows spanning both sides of this build ensure light not only floods the new classroom and is plentiful enough to illuminate the interconnected classrooms. All windows are lockable and high performance A-rated argon filled with toughened glass, conforming to SBEM. The chosen frames are powder coated aluminium in anthracite grey. We offer the full range of RAL coded colours so it is possible to match with existing frames if desired.
  • Flooring: Our hardwearing 10mm v-groove laminate flooring is ideal for the constant scraping of chairs and desks and helps muffle the sound of constant foot fall. It too comes in a range of colours and styles.
  • Western Red Cedar Cladding: We offer a variety of external finishes. For this build the school chose cedar. This beautiful sustainably sourced FSC wood is incredibly robust with a fine even grain and anti-fungal properties. It lasts for decades maintenance free (though can be oiled if preferred) and adds to the thermal efficiency of the building. It is kiln dried, so will not warp or swell and is secured with secret stainless steel fixings.
