The John Roan School’s Maze Hill buildings have received a RIBA award for architectural excellence.
The award-winning project saw a brand new three-storey building and a modernisation of the school’s old listed site.
As one of the oldest state schools in the country, John Roan became the first UK project to use Flowcrete UK’s Isocrete Bagged K-Screed. The 336-year-old Greenwich based school installed the screed in its new, state-of-the-art Maze Hill Buildings.
Through the government’s ‘Building Schools for the Future’ programme the school secured funding for the new 7,500m² construction and 6,500m² of Isocrete Bagged K-Screed was specified for the floor area under development.
Headteacher Mr Malone told www.newsshopper.co.uk: “We are honoured and delighted to receive such recognition for our new school buildings. It’s a testament to the commitment of a whole team of people involved in the project.
“Credit must go to the architects, builders, staff, governors, foundation trustees, parents and carers and of course our students for their vision, commitment and support of the project over the last couple of years.
“We hope these school buildings will serve the children of Greenwich in a way that John Roan himself would have envisaged for many years to come.
