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.

Progress on the building site has increased noticeably as the team have taken advantage of the recent improvement in the weather. To date, approximately 1800 cubic metres of soil have been removed from the site, and a further 1300 cubic metres of chalk have been stored on site for reuse later in the project.
The concrete frame of the building is progressing well and has rapidly grown out of the ground. The final major pour of concrete will take place next week and within two weeks all of the concrete and drainage work will be finished. So far, approximately 1150 tonnes of concrete and 130 tonnes of reinforcing steel bars have gone into the frame of the building which has now reached the floor level height of the second floor. Work will then begin on the steel frame that will complete the second floor and the team will also begin to seal the outside of the building envelope. As the building approaches full height, its sheer scale is becoming apparent.
