St Dunstan’s College
Willmott Dixon have appointed Firetec to complete the Intumescent Paint works to the St Dunstan’s College redevelopment. The £18m contract, which is part of St Dunstan’s College’s wider plan to significantly redevelop the site – which has stood since their foundation in 1888 – and rationalise their existing buildings into a new world-class facility. Designed by Bond Bryan, the state-of-the-art development will be sited adjacent to the existing historic Headmaster’s House and be connected by a glass atrium. Built over two, three and four storeys, phase one will see demolition of an existing building and the construction of the new junior school that will provide a stimulating learning environment – with specialist facilities for art, music and performance – while providing unrestricted access to age-appropriate sporting facilities across the elevated playing areas and the two Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGAs). Phase two will see the delivery of the STEM Centre and Sixth Form Hub; these cutting-edge facilities will consolidate STEM subjects into a modern central space. The Hub will also provide university-style learning – including large independent study spaces and social areas and a café.
