Borras is proud to have completed another project at Merchant Taylors’ School. One of the ‘Great Nine’ schools of England, Merchant Taylors’ has been providing an outstanding education to boys since 1561 from their stunning 285 acre site in Northwood.

We initially begun our relationship with Merchant Taylors’ in 2005, when our General Contracts team successfully delivered a new £4.7m Design & Technology Building. This was then followed by a £765k refurbishment project in 2016 which provided new state-of-the-art History teaching facilities.

In January 2018, we set up site for a third time. Once again teaming up with architects, Architecture PLB and consultants Trogal Griffin Associates, this time to deliver a new £2.2m Geography Building. This new building provides first aid facilities, office space and two classrooms on the ground floor. There is also a staff room, meeting room, resource room and two I.T enabled classrooms on the first floor, with a further two classrooms on the second floor.

The design and facing bricks of the new build, which is linked to an existing building, were carefully chosen to match the aesthetic of the surrounding structures.

A temporary haul road providing dedicated access/egress to the site ensured disruption to the surrounding occupied school buildings was minimised as much as possible. Despite the challenges we faced with weather and working within a live environment, the project was delivered on time.
