RGS Phase 2 - John Brown Building

Location Guildford, Surrey

Client Royal Grammar School

Contractor Lifebuild Solutions Ltd

Value £3.5M



The John Brown Building represents Phase 2 of the nine-phase RGS Masterplan, replacing an old converted administration block with a brand new brick building housing Design Technology on the ground floor and two further floors of general teaching classrooms.  The scheme provides the school with decant space and a new DT department enabling the rationalising and expansion of the main building during Phase 3.  The JBB is connected to the main school building via an octagonal glazed link bridge. Handover was achieved in October 2016.


IID introduced RGS to The Media Collective, a full-service design agency, who developed the internal graphics and signs for the The John Brown building – please click here to view the RGS case study.
