Maria Fidelis School
- Client: Kier
- Architect: Jestico & Whiles
- Scope: New Build
- Operational school over two sites
- Complex Site constraints
- Safeguard for Crossrail 2
- Detailed ground modeling required
Parmarbrook were appointed by Kier and the EFA to provide civil & structural engineering services on the new Maria Fidelis school building, which was led by architects Jestico & Whiles.
The relocation and expansion of the school is due to the construction of HS2 Euston Station which will run adjacent to the school’s current North Gower Street site.
Projects challenges include central London construction logistical constraints, existing operational school buildings and designing foundations to safeguard the below future Crossrail 2 Euston Station.
An existing disused police maintenance depot, built following extensive bomb damage to the area during world war 2, will be demolished and then re-built into one school which will accommodate up to 1,050 pupils, including 300 sixth form students.
