Walford School Gym

Background

Founded over 120 years ago, Walford School needed its first purpose-built gymnasium. We built a multi-purpose hall to serve as a gym and function space for the school and its community.

Challenges

  • Facilities needed to be flexible for a range of recreational activities, plus functions and meetings

Outcomes

  • We constructed a two-storey complex to cater to the school and community’s varying needs
  • We built two full-size, timber-floored sports courts and two large upstairs areas for exercise and dance/movement
  • Our build included change rooms, toilets, staff accommodation, storage and a viewing gallery
  • The flexible design and lift to the first floor allows for a range of recreational activities, functions and meeting spaces for the school and wider community
