The Harefield Academy

Harefield Academy in Hillingdon has become the first Academy to take boarders which was completed in September 2011 on time and within a very tight budget.

The boarding housing was named The Lord Adonis House and officially opened by Lord Andrew Adonis in January 2012.

The new boarding house provides boarding accommodation for up to 50 students combined with 2 and 3 bedroom units for on-site staff. Ground floor areas provide 4 family rooms, a TV room, sixth form social area, kitchen and laundry areas together with a large social space for the boarders to relax.

The building was constructed of cross laminated timber sections that were able to be erected during the bad weather period last year whilst many sites were closed during the snow this project only lost 2 days due to weather.

BAQUS were fully involved in a value engineering process during design stage in order to meet client’s budget.
