TGA Consulting Engineers were been engaged as Mechanical and Electrical Consulting Engineers for the refurbishment and remodeling of existing accommodation at Kings Priory School as well as the development of new buildings.

Project Summary

Kings Priory School was formed in 2013 by the merger of the former independently funded Kings School with the maintained sector Priory Primary School to form a new, state funded, independent school for 1,350 pupils over the two sites.  The school is sponsored by the Woodard Academies Trust.

TGA working on a number of projects as part of a £2.5m programme of works to adapt the school buildings for their new role.

Projects include local replacement of dilapidated elements of the M&E services infrastructure, major refurbishments of existing accommodation on both sites and the construction of major new extensions to the existing buildings.

We were engaged as part of a professional team led by Durham based architects Howarth Litchfield, with whom we have worked elsewhere on schools projects both within the independent and maintained sectors.
