Avanti Grange

Avanti Grange High School
Bishops Stortford
Main Contractor
Bond Bryan
Project Outline

A new £32m secondary school built via the Pagabo capital works framework by ISG across a large 11.4-hectare site that straddles either side of the A120. A contemporary designed, two-storey concrete frame structure with brick façade. The southern zone of the split site development features the main school campus, which has a linear form and incorporates a central full height glazed spine to link classroom, break out, and communal spaces.

The school boasts a large sports hall and a floodlit multi use games area (MUGA), alongside car parking and drop off areas. A large attenuation swale, or pond structure, has been formed to provide a natural drainage solution and to enhance biodiversity at the site. A roof-mounted photo voltaic array provides the school with emission free energy, alongside a range of other measures, including high- specification construction materials and triple glazed windows to reduce the building’s environmental impact. To access the northern campus zone, a new 30m span steel pedestrian link bridge has been constructed across the A120. The northern site accommodates five grass sports pitches across three large terraced areas.

The appointment saw the Parkrose team deliver a comprehensive Joinery works package comprising SoundSorba veneered timber panelling, reception desks, American White Oak veneered doorsets & ironmongery, glazed screens, hygienic wall cladding, skirtings, handrails and FF&E.
