LIFE Build Solutions recently completed a new junior school in Northwood, Middlesex.

The project includes large and light classrooms, a hall, a state-of-the-art discovery centre, as well as facilities for music, art, design and technology, science and drama.

The building was designed to be as energy efficient and as ecologically sustainable as possible, including solar panels and ‘living roofs’.

The site also encourages biodiversity with a selection of plants and trees to draw in birds, spiders, bees and other insects.

Headmistress of the school, Dr Mary Short, said: “The new junior school is a beautiful new addition to St Helen’s and provides a wonderful and modern environment which will promote exciting learning for keen young minds”.

Aerial and ground footage was taken during the construction, showing Little St Helen’s, Junior School and Senior School.
