Moat House Primary, Coventry

Appointed as architects to Coventry City Council under a 'project partnering' arrangement with Gallifords Midlands, to design and construct the Moat House Community Primary School.

The building accommodates a 315 pupil primary school together with New Deal for Communities facilities, including centres for adult education and early years. It is intended as a flagship for the regeneration of the deprived Woodend area of North East Coventry and brings together the interests of the existing Moat House School and its community through close liaison and co-operation with the New Deals for Communities programme.

This innovative and flexible building provides education and support in accordance with the principles of life-long learning both now and in the future.

The £3.8m building was named Best New Building at the Coventry Design Awards and winner of the 2006 West Midlands RICS Awards Community Benefit category.
