Project Information


The redevelopment of Orpington College was a combination of new build and refurbishment carried out over a phased period.

Refurbishment of the 10-storey Tower block, consisting of staff rooms, classrooms and admin offices. The total floor area of approximately 5400m2 refurbished on a phased basis including the upgrade of the space heating via new steel panel radiators, local cooling to the Server Room, Reprographics, IT Manager’s room and Security Room and modifications to hot and cold water services in the WCs to suit new layouts.

The Communal Building involved part demolition, part refurbishment and new build services. Much of the area was new build with an enlarged communal area and refectory beneath an ETFE roof, new toilet facilities located within the South East corner. The new entrance lobby and reception area was supplied with under floor heating from the existing LTHW system.

The new build Lychgate Building consists of four 800m2 floors, with roof level plant space. Termodeck has been used as the main heating, cooling and ventilation system for the building. Three AHU’s were supplied with LTHW from the existing district heating system located on site to temper & heat incoming fresh air operating on the Termodeck principle utilising summer night time pre cooling of modified hollow care planks.
