From little acorns...

Given the abandonment of Building Schools for the Future in 2010, it should be considered a victory that the OFSTED Outstanding Surrey Square Primary School near South London’s Aylesbury Estate managed to fund its just-completed Early Years Centre and crèche. Earle Architects has done a good job of counter pointing the stiffness of its original Victorian building with a far warmer and more welcoming shingle-faced single storey block. Built using Kingspan’s TEK system – panels fixed to a glulam frame – the whole lot was craned into position and assembled in just 15 days. Top marks!
