Creative Arts Block secures DFE funding

Feilden Fowles and Ralph Allen School were successful in a bid to the Department for Education to build a new ten classroom block. Having recently gained planning permission, the project has recently gone on site with an extremely tight programme finishing in February 2013. This pre-fabricated Cross Laminated Timber Structure has a suspended steel walkway to the north, serving the passively ventilated single-depth block. This project will be an exemplar austerity build and demonstrates the power of having an existing masterplan in place. It is the largest project the practice has undertaken to date.

Hepworth Wakefield Competition Win

Following a successful competition bid, Feilden Fowles have been appointed to refurbish the Learning Spaces in the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery.

The scheme has successfully received funding through the Clore Duffield Foundation.
