Jo has been working with Gallions Mount Primary School since 2009 to help the school to maximise the spatial potential of their buildings. The initial project was to convert a former Premises Manager’s house into an ICT suite, staff work room and parent's room. To create the necessary space the first floor had to be structurally altered and fitted with a new staircase. Further projects have involved the conversion of a plant room into a classroom requiring a new access stair and a one-storey extension into an internal courtyard to create a new office, music room and small group teaching space. Each intervention has been developed in close dialogue with the school and sympathetically with the existing 1970’s building.
