New Science + Pastoral wings, St Joseph’s School, Salisbury

A new wing to provide two science laboratories and a classroom for a voluntary aided secondary school. The existing labs in the school were refurbished and converted to class and staff rooms as part of the project. Planning permission was obtained in June 2002 and the new wing was completed in August 2003.

The building form is defined by monopitched roofs with clerestorey windows to the north side immediately under the monopitched ridge. Outdoor teaching spaces open to the south of each of the science labs. External materials are brightly coloured with insulated render in ochre and terracotta, blue timber windows and a grey raised seam metal roof. Exposed steelwork is painted charcoal grey.

A further phase, to provide a new Pastoral Centre for the School was commissioned by the school in 2004, and was completed at Easter 2005
