Work started on historic school expansion
Bristol Cathedral Choir School

Work has started on the first phase of the expansion of Bristol Cathedral Choir School, an historic school that lies within the precinct of Bristol Cathedral and is thought to date back to the 1100s.

This first phase is to refurbisth and enhance existing classrooms in Abbey House, a Grade II listed building in the Cathedral precinct

Listed building consent was granted in June this year for this small intervention in the context of what is a very complex historical site. 

The next phase of the expansion project, which has been submitted for approval, is due to start at the end of 2017 for completion next summer.

'We are delighted to be working with Skanska again, following the award winning project at Colston's Primary School, completed in 2015,' comments Nick Childs, Design Director and founding partner of Childs+Sulzmann Architects.
