Sixth Form Centre, St John’s School

The project was the refurbishment and conversion of an existing historic stable block into a 6th form centre and CCF for St John’s Independent School in Leatherhead, Surrey. The building is one of a number of projects Skelly & Couch have worked on for the school as part of its delivery of a five-year masterplan for the campus. It was delivered along with a new Girls’ Day House under a phased construction programme. 

The existing thermal fabric was upgraded to reduce energy demand and improve thermal comfort with careful integration of services to maintain the historic nature of the building. An enabling works phase was carried out to divert existing IT and statutory services and maintain existing shower and changing rooms attached to the building. 

Skelly & Couch were appointed to provide full M&E, environmental, acoustic and co-ordination design services.
