The Building Project
Tring Park is pleased to announce that construction is well underway on the first phase of its major development programme, designed by London architects Burrell Foley Fischer LLP.
Over a decade ago, the school’s governors recognised that it needed to invest in facilities to keep it at the leading edge of performing arts schools for the next century. Recent alumni have benefited from the award-winning Park Studios, which opened in 2011 to great acclaim, and transformed the life of the school. The new master plan, which consists of three main phases, aims to further enhance the school experience for future talented students.
Anselm Barker, Deputy Principal writes:
At the time of writing, the school is 28 weeks into the scheduled 64 week construction period. The concrete frame that comprises the lower ground, ground and first floors is complete, as is the steel frame comprising the second floor, and work has commenced on the roof of the building. At the same time, the interior walls that comprise the teaching spaces, workshop a nd toilets in the lower ground floor have rapidly progressed and the shape of the interior spaces on the lower floor are now becoming clear. Drainage has been completed as far as is possible at the stage, the three main staircases are currently being installed and plumbing and electrical work has started on the bottom two floors. The fine weather has allowed for uninterrupted, if rather hot, progress to be made and the view from the top floor across the canopy of the ancient Cedar of Lebanon tree that the building wraps around is rather magnificent. The first phase is due to be complete and ready for use by September 2019.
