Scope of Works

William Morris 6th Form Centre was an extension to an already existing school facility situated in the heart of Barons Court, Hammersmith & Fulham. Located within a residential setting , this school was named after William Morris, the textile designer, artist, writer and libertarian socialist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and British Arts and Crafts Movement.

As the construction was during the school term calendar, we all had to work under the live school environment. Although, this is always a tricky environment to work within this was successfully managed by all parties to create as little an impact to the day to day running of the school as necessary for an education environment.

Working alongside the main contractor Buxton Building and the school itself, Lightweight Drywall carried out the installation of the SFS, Internal drylining, associated plastering works including solid plastering, and the installation of Rockfon Acoustic ceilings. The complexities of the build were that the building was not only an extension to the existing building footprint, but also a part refurbishment to update the out-dated section of the building. The led to challenges with the bespoke nature of the interfacing details as well as ensuring compliance with all movement considerations between old and new buildings respectively.

At Lightweight Drywall, we are proud to have successfully delivered such an aesthetically pleasing project that follows in the footsteps of a local icon. It was a pleasure to work alongside both Buxton Building and William Morris 6th Form to deliver additional facilities to the schools education facilities.
