Hilden Grange Preparatory School
Hilden Grange Preparatory School A playful environment for serious education Arriving outside Hilden Grange you’d be forgiven for thinking this was a typical little Victorian Prep School, with its sharp red-brick gables. But beyond the original building – converted from a large house – lies a highly inventive, 21st century addition that nonetheless sits comfortably in its surroundings.

BAM refurbished the Grade II listed South Thames College to bring it up to the standard of a new build extension it completed under an earlier contract. The extensive works gave students at the College in London far more modern and attractive facilities throughout. We worked with a conservation officer to carefully restore flooring, tiling and a large oak staircase to their former glory. BAM worked at all stages of design and construction to unify the refurbished and newly built facilities

BAM built a new campus for South Cheshire College in Crewe. The heart of the redeveloped campus is the Crescent, which features a spectacular curved glass atrium and contains a series of functions from a café to a travel centre. which also includes a theatre, a sports hall and a learning resource centre. Sustainability features including natural ventilation, energy-efficient lighting, green roofs and rainwater harvesting contributed to a BREEAM Very Good rating.

BAM built Chobham Academy at the Athletes’ Village. The facility was used during the Games as the main operations centre for the Village. It opened its doors for local children aged 3 to 18. The five-storey circular main building is bright and airy with a transparent roof, a central atrium and floor-to-ceiling windows in many classrooms. Additional buildings hold a nursery and primary school as well as drama studios and a sports hall. The total capacity of the academy is 1,800 children.

BAM is building a new home for 1,450 pupils at Strood Academy in Kent. We designed the Academy around a central street leading to clusters of teaching rooms. This gives easy navigation for pupils and helps staff structure departments. A three-storey terracotta blue entrance gives the buildings more prominence and grandeur than their predecessors. The project is targeting a BREEAM Very Good rating with sustainable features that include an on-site windmill and natural ventilation.

The Brammall Music Building, University of Birmingham. This project marked the completion of a 100-year-old vision for the University of Birmingham. BAM created a building for the institution’s Department of Music to fit into a vacant slot in a crescent designed by Edwardian architects Aston Webb and Edward Ingress Bell. The front of the building matches its Grade II listed neighbours, with hand-made bricks and a curvature fitting into the crescent.
