Hertswood Academy

Location: Borehamwood, Hertfordshire

Country: United Kingdom

Client: Willmott Dixon

Architect: Bond Bryan 

Meinhardt UK has been appointed by main contractor Willmott Dixon to provide civil and structural engineering services for a new building to replace the existing Hertswood Academy in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire.

The existing buildings, dating from the 1950s and 1960s, are spread across two sites (10 minutes’ walk apart) and have reached the end of their design life.

The proposal is to amalgamate these onto a single plot of land from one of the existing sites to create a leading edge educational environment for the students.

Due to be completed in 2018, the new structure will comprise a large three-storey building featuring a library and extensive community facilities, including a theatre and sports centre.
