Bishop’s blessing for new mezzanine floor

Posted by Marianne

Founded in 1846, a London primary school has received recognition for its long service, with an award ceremony conducted by the Bishop of London.

In addition to presenting the St. Mellitus Medal for the school’s contribution to Christianity in the area, the Bishop blessed the newly constructed  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring level at St. Barnabas C of E Primary School, built at a cost of £400,000 which has been raised by the school over the last few years.

St. Barnabas C of E Primary School was originally constructed to accommodate 582 pupils split between three schoolrooms, with the original Trust Fund, in conjunction with the National Society, providing living quarters for a schoolmaster and two schoolmistresses as part of a number of premises forming St. Barnabas’ College in Pimlico.

The freehold of the site was donated by the Duke of Westminster with construction costs being met from contributions by local residents. Over the years, the number of children has risen, requiring bigger classrooms, a new library and more office space.

There are difficulties in extending the space with many older buildings or, particularly as in this case where the building is a Grade II listed building, stringent restrictions on altering the outward appearance. It is in these kinds of instances that the installation of mezzanine floors becomes an attractive and viable proposition.

The new mezzanine flooring level has created a third floor within the existing premises providing the school with two extra classrooms, a new administrative block and a modern library.
