Our team of experts in ByrneLooby London were invited by Pitman Tozer Architects to carry out a structural survey of St Leonard’s School in Mayfield. This scheme involved the conversion, reconfiguration and refurbishment of an existing dormitory within the Grade I listed building to create a new state of the art sixth form centre whilst remaining sympathetic to the historic fabric of the school. The new space comprises of an entrance hall/exhibition space, a conference room, a new library, classrooms, study rooms, offices and a series of social spaces. The project involved the unpicking of years of insensitive works to the original building fabric, to create a series of well-proportioned rooms and to reveal some previously hidden stained glass windows. Other works included new double glazed units, major re-roofing and landscaping.
