Leigh Academy, Blackheath
The development of a new 1,150 pupil six form entry secondary school with sixth form for pupils aged 11-18 years, on the site of the former Blackheath Bluecoat CoE Secondary School in Blackheath.
We were delighted to be appointed by Bouygues UK as their preferred Civil and Structural engineering consultant on this project.
The form of construction is primarily structural steel frame superstructure with precast floors supported on a network of ground beams and pad foundations. There is also a sports hall and a main assembly hall with auditorium seating.
A key feature is a central courtyard providing an internal amenity space.
External works comprised hard and soft landscaping, access road, parking and a multi use games area (MUGA).
The below ground drainage is designed to full SUDS standards, incorporating attenuation.
