Maria Fidelis School, Euston

project overview

Parmarbrook were appointed by Kier and the EFA to provide civil & structural engineering services on the new Maria Fidelis school building, which is being led by architects Jestico & Whiles.

Maria Fidelis Secondary School, which currently accommodates 666 pupils split between two locations, has recently received planning consent to consolidate the school onto one site.

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.
