A Lift and Slide System has been installed in the second phase of refurbishment for Lowther Primary School, London Borough of Richmond, to help transform the facilities and complement the existing building.
Part of the second phase extension doubled the size of the primary school with a new two-storey building, taking it from single form entry to two-form entry. As part of this phase of the project, P C Henderson’s Lift and Slide hardware was installed helping create a dramatic entrance to the playground. The 900m2 block is comprised of four classrooms, a hall, a kitchen, an ICT suite, staff room and support rooms.
To meet the needs of Richmond Council, Lowther Primary School staff and the school children, Patel Taylor architects designed an open and bright extension connected to the existing first floor building via a glazed link bridge. The success of both phases was helped by the collaborative working between the school, the local authority and the architect.
P C Henderson’s Lift and Slide hardware was specified to help realise the vision of the final extension. Lift and Slide allows the use of wooden doors and up to 3m2and the glazing increases natural light whilst providing excellent weather resistance and security features.
