The Denes Academy School
The DHS comprises an original Listed Grammar School building and comprehensive later 1970ís additions. Works to expand the school in order to accommodate additional pupil numbers were consented on the basis that parking and sustainable access issues were addressed and the frontage improved to relieve ecological issues. Accordingly an historic gateway was reconstructed reintroducing an axial pedestrian pathway. New accommodation was provided over the existing sports complex and linked back to the main school. Operational and practical constraints led to the adoption of a steel framed solution that could be quickly erected and made weather tight to limit disruption to the areas below.
