Building on Excellence

Heatherside Junior School

Fleet

Overview

In the 1960s there was a high demand for new school buildings. The buildings required needed to be affordable and quick to build. SCOLA buildings were introduced to meet this requirement as they could be designed and built simultaneously. However, with poor insulation and over glazing they now provide uncomfortable learning environments and have a high energy consumption.

With the buildings still remaining structurally sound, Hampshire County Council have created a wider programme within the county to re-clad all the SCOLA system build properties.

The new cladding system has been designed to meet modern building standards, be durable and low maintenance whilst providing a improved educational learning environment.

The works at Heatherside Junior School consist of the re-cladding of the main school block and smaller 4 classroom additional block to the rear of the school.
