THE DEEPINGS
SCIENCE CENTRE


  • THIS NEW SCIENCE CENTRE IN THE TOWN OF MARKET DEEPING IS THE FIRST PART OF A WIDER MASTERPLAN STRATEGY AT THE SCHOOL TO RENEW AND REFRESH A NUMBER OF TEACHING FACILITIES WHICH HAVE REACHED THE END OF THEIR WORKING LIFE.

  • The two storey building comprises 11 specialist science laboratories along with a lecture theatre and science discovery area. These teaching facilities are complemented with prep rooms and staff work areas.

    The challenging site determined the eventual building form which is connected directly to the adjacent sports facilities. Whilst the building is deep in form, all teaching spaces have been located around the perimeter of the building to ensure good levels of natural daylight and natural ventilation. The double height discovery zone has been located at the entrance to the building to act as a hub for science and orientate people in the building.

  • The building has been constructed with a steel frame and composite deck utilising natural ventilation wherever possible with passivents to the deepest parts of the building.

    A large glazed gable end to the building opens up views of the science discovery area to the rest of the school, helping to celebrate the subject area and encourage its integration into the wider school.
