RGS Phase 3 - Spine Extension and Science Labs

Location Guildford, Surrey

Client Royal Grammar School

Contractor Neilcott Construction Ltd

Value £5.5M



Phase 3 of the nine-phase RGS Masterplan involves the conversion of old DT labs into new state-of-the-art Chemistry labs, followed by the building of a fourth floor extension over the existing three-storey ‘Spine’ block between two central courtyards.  This provides a suite of 9 new Modern Foreign Languages classrooms and language laboratory within the existing building footprint, building upwards due to the tight urban site.  The project also comprises new offices, a break-out learning space and a 160 person seminar/exam room.  The new facilities in the heart of the school are being co-ordinated around a live school environment, and build in services for the future Study Atrium (Phase 4) and Dining Atrium (Phase 7) infilling the existing courtyards either side of the Spine.  Construction is underway and due for completion August 2018.
