This project is to provide additional teaching spaces to a small primary school located in Maraval Trinidad. The school is on a restricted site and the teachers have identified there is an urgent need for additional classrooms to provide better teaching facilities whilst maintaining the existing school population.

The building has 3 levels, with the lower one remaining open to provide covered play space for the children. The building has open staircases at either end and is linked into the existing school at first floor level. The new structure will enclose the courtyard space.

The constraints of the site are difficult as there is little space for working around the new building. In addition Works can only take place when the children are not in class.
