Watford Science Dome
Location: Watford, Hertfordshire
SURVEYOR: M Gregory Consulting
CLIENT: Watford Grammar School for Girls
DATE: 2014 - 2015
A new 7.2m geodesic double-glazed solar dome was constructed on top of the school’s existing three-storey science block. A new structural deck was created above the existing flat roof to carry the new loads back to supporting walls and a stair access tower was also created.
The dome houses new individual science stations for an array of learning from accoustics and sky observation to climate and laboratory work. There is also an outside terrace area with additional teaching resources.
