Bristol Cathedral Choir School
With accommodation ranging from medieval ecclesiastical buildings integral to the Cathedral, to a recently constructed school and office building around College Square, Bristol Cathedral Choir needed to reorganize and expand their estate to accommodate a rising pupil roll.
A project demanded a combination of judicious re-modelling and refurbishment combined with some new-build – the Cresswell Building which houses new kitchen and dining facilities, a multi-purpose hall and teaching spaces for art. Construction work was undertaken in a series of carefully planned phases ensuring that the school was able to operate with minimum disruption throughout.
The key outcome was the provision of defined curriculum bases for each of the school’s five faculties. This allowed more efficient staff and student movement across the campus, and moved the majority of teaching accommodation from the original Cathedral buildings to the new College Square side.
