Surrey SEN School

Archadia are pleased to see the completion of a hydrotherapy pool, activity room and changing facilities in a new building for a school attended by children with learning difficulties and
challenging behaviour.

Being in the Surrey greenbelt, the project initially faced a particularly difficult planning process but Archadia steered it through and construction commenced last summer. The building is constructed to high energy-saving standards with the use of solar panels and rainwater harvesting. Due to the nature of the pupils’ needs, careful consideration had to be given to lighting levels. The roof was designed with overhangs to minimise glare coming in and bouncing off reflective surfaces which contributes to the calming environment. The project completed earlier this month and provides a much needed facility for the school’s pupils.
