The Building Project
Tring Park is pleased to announce that construction has just begun 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.

We are now eight weeks into the build and, despite torrential downpours for most of that time, the construction has remained on schedule. It is only with the freezing temperatures and snow of the last two days that work has been affected.
During this time, the trench sheet piling was completed and the main excavation work took place, creating a huge hole in the ground where the academic car park once was. Approximately 150 lorry loads of soil have been removed from the site, which equates to 1500 cubic metres of soil. A further 600 cubic metres of chalk have been transferred to the area which will become the new Lower Lizzies car park.
On Monday, the first delivery of concrete is scheduled to arrive that will form the foundations of the new building. Over the next few weeks, work on the concrete frame will commence and the building will slowly rise out of the ground.
