Pinner, Harrow

CLIENT: Girls' Day School Trust
ARCHITECT: Pellings
QUANTITY SURVEYOR: Ridge & Partners
VALUE: £1,144,000
CONTRACT PERIOD: 26 Weeks

Our Special Works team have completed another project in partnership with the Girls’ Day School Trust. We began with preparation for early stages of works to be carried out at Northwood College for Girls, in the town of Pinner, London Borough of Harrow.

Founded in 1878, Northwood College for Girls has expanded a number of times over the years. The facility now hosts an early years department, juniors, seniors and sixth form. The sporting facilities at the school are of a high standard, and the sports teams regularly participate in local and nationwide tournaments.
This project involved the total strip out of the plant room and existing roof, with refurbishment of the swimming pool. The works included:

  • Internal alterations and complete refurbishment of the pool
  • Full testing and installation of a new air filtration system to the pool
  • All new championship equipment supplied and fitted including starter blocks and lane ropes
  • New Kalsic roof system installation
  • Fully automated BMS system and ventilation with new filtration
  • General mechanical and electrical installations including Foilux lighting and new fire alarm system
  • Tiling throughout with a new fully automated pool cover.

We faced the challenge of delivering this project whilst the school remained in use following the summer break, with the inclusion of removing the existing roof and having to crane in the air conditioning units. We worked with partners Pellings LLP and Ridge & Partners to deliver the works.
