This unique project, designed by Professor Will Allsop, consists of constructing a residential apartment block, which ‘floats’ above this performing arts school.

The proposal consists of a large steel deck with a cross laminate structure being constructed whilst the school is expected to stay open and fully operational.

The proposed build includes a variety of specialist and unique finishes including a proposed twig cladding to give the feeling that you are immersed within the trees surrounding the site.


Oander’s Role

In conjunction with our role as Phase I Project Managers, Oander has managed the construction of the steelwork, foundations and piles which are located within the existing building.

Whilst working with the development manager, Oander has been retained to provide cost and buildability advice to ensure best value is achieved throughout the entire process.

We have also engaged with a number of specialists to develop ideas and contribute to this unique development.
