Project Description

The Brief

Working Title School which recently rebranded as the London Screen Academy, will be a new film production Free School providing a thousand Sixth Form places in Isington. The client and funders are the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and LocatED, the government-owned property company responsible for buying and developing sites for free schools. This project is also backed by world-renowned British production company Working Title Films.

The Works

The Pristine London team were appointed by JLL to undertake first phase enabling works on this project. This included full strip out, lead paint removal, the demolition of an existing roof structure, full design responsibility for all temporary works with installation of approximately 80 tonnes of steel, the removal of the rear façade and internal concrete cutting and breaking to create an atrium within the building. The atrium alone included the removal of 25,000 sq ft of slab across the 5 floors with the estimated removal of hardcore to be at 1500 tonnes. This project is working under BREEAM excellence rating.

The team has recently started on phase two of this project to undertake the Builders Works package. It’s been a fantastic project to be involved in! 

Prior to the below video being filmed, Pristine had already completed a full building strip out, lead paint removal and demolition of existing roof structures.
