Project One

New entrance lobby and feature canopy at Tuxford School, Tuxford. The original school reception main entrance did not include a storm lobby and therefore created draft and heat loss issues during the winter months. The brief was to design an entrance lobby and feature canopy to add a focal point to the existing main entrance and to reduce the heat loss issues. A striking curved tubular steel design was chosen for the canopy to emphasise the School's forward thinking image.

Project Two

Internal adaptations to existing science block at The National School, Hucknall. The project consisted of combining two existing neighbouring rooms, a classroom and a staffbase, converting them into a new science laboratory. This would increase the existing science block accommodation from eight to nine sceience labs. the project also included the construction of a new staffbase to replace the existing one. DM Lock Ltd were appointed to prepare full working drawings, submit the building regulations application, appoint a contractor and carry out full on-site supervision including co-ordination of specialist suppliers and services.

The School are now involved with a new BTEC course covering basic construction site skills such as carpentry, joinery, roofing, decorating, etc. The project involved the erection of two cargo storage containers as base units.
