client | Balfour Beatty Construction Ltd.
project value | £10 million
contract | Design and Build / Academy Framework Award
project brief | The Bourne Academy has recently undergone redevelopment of the existing site, providing updated facilities for 1050 students.

A mix of remodel, refurbishment and refresh works have been completed to the existing buildings. New build accommodation wrapping around the existing facilities enhances movement and circulation across the site, whilst creating pockets of external social spaces between the buildings.

The new buildings comprise a Science extension, a 2-storey Maths & English building, an Arts & PE extension, a 6th Form Centre and a new build feature entrance building. The new entrance accommodates the Academy’s reception area and admin offices.

Remodelled areas provide a new Music department, Information Zone and reconfigured Drama Hall.

Refurbished areas comprise improvements to general teaching spaces and circulation spaces.

External spaces have also been improved with new hard and soft landscaping works and the provision of a new multi-use games area.
