ADP Wins Planning Approval for Braywick Court School

ADP’s expansion plans for a new one form entry primary school in Maidenhead has been approved by the local council. The school is being built adjacent to Braywick Park and Braywick Nature Centre, which is a Site of Specific Scientific Interest, for the Bellevue Trust.

Braywick Court School will be a part one-storey, part two-storey building with a low-level roof line. A series of connected internal and external spaces have been incorporated, with the hall and ground floor classrooms leading to outdoor play areas. The first floor has been designed to sit above the ground floor as a pavilion with further classrooms for older pupils. Full-height glazing allows natural light in and assists in minimising the visual impact of the building.

The elevations have been designed to sit harmoniously within the site, complementing local buildings by using a refined palette of brickwork, bronze-coloured glazing and bronze-coloured metal cladding panels.

The proposed school design was presented to local residents at a consultation event in January this year.

ADP also designed the new two form entry Oldfield Primary School in Maidenhead, which was officially opened by the newly appointed prime minister, Theresa May, in June.
