vHH’s new primary school has started on site

School for Urban&Civic will serve new Houlton development

vHH were commissioned by Urban&Civic to design a new primary school for their Houlton development, which is a new residential urban extension of 6200 homes on the former GPO Rugby Radio Station and is a joint venture with Aviva Investors. The school will be at the heart of the first phase of development, and delivered in parallel with the first houses, so that it is immediately available to residents.

Designed to provide three forms-of-entry it will be built in three phases, growing with the community. Our proposal includes the key communal spaces in the first phase and adopts a modular approach by adding simple classroom blocks for each further phase as the school grows.
