What we did
At the start of June, we began works on the old building then early July started phase two in the new building. We ensured a smooth handover as the Physics department was completed out of school term time, minimizing inconvenience to the staff and students.
During the design process, we liaised with the Head of Physics and the Facilities team to finalize specifications and colour schemes of the project. We removed walls, layed new flooring throughout the rooms, and plastered walls to remove existing brickwork. We decorated ceiling lighting, plastered fuse boards and distribution boards and in the prep room created PPA and storage space. For the science laboratories, we created a sample pedestal to sign off before production and ensured that technicalities and safety were addressed during the design stages.
Overall, whilst it was a large project, Pinnacle carried out each stage efficiently from programming on site, communicating between the department and estates team, designing flexible teaching spaces and ensuring the scope of both the building and furniture works. We are proud to have created a flexible and functional space for Wellington College.
