Urswick School, McLaren Construction’s new build five form entry 11-16 school in Hackney has been awarded the People’s Choice Award and a commendation at the Hackney Design Awards.

This project has been a huge success as it was originally scoped as a part refurbishment project but with the collaboration between Avanti Architects, Hackney Council and McLaren Construction it was able to be developed into a new build project that could be completed within the original funding constraints.

This sports specialism school boasts a new sports hall which is located next to the main entrance showcasing it to the community. It also has a range of new facilities including a new forum, a covered double height space, which acts as the main social and ceremonial space for the school and allows for community access to the assembly hall, sports facilities and dining area.

We are proud to have achieved these awards and are pleased to see what a positive effect this project has had on the local community.
