St Clares Science Classroom

St Clares Oxford

New Science Classrooms and Preparation room.

St Clare’s Oxford is a fairly unique school in that offers students from all over the world a chance to receive a first class education in the heart of Oxford. Founded in 1953 by Anne Dreydel OBE and Pamela Morris, it grew out of a scheme that was created after the Second World War, with the aim to advance international education.

The college campus has grown significantly over the years, with a new residence building housing 24 students being acquired in 2008. Completed in 2010, the project featured many energy saving features such as rain water harvesting and super insulation, the lights were also motion sensitive so not to waste electricity.

In September 2014, a new £3.3m Science and Mathematics building was completed which provided three science laboratories and prep rooms. Named after Pamela Morris, one of the founders of the college, the building was carefully designed to complement its surroundings.  InterFocus were asked to provide the turnkey project for the three new school laboratories classrooms and a prep room.

The start-to-finish manner of the project gave the InterFocus team the opportunity to maximise the potential of the space for the three new laboratories. Intelligent planning and implementing allowed us to create cutting-edge laboratories for the school which would serve to help the students in their scientific studies for years to come.

The project comprised of:

  • Project management.
  • Strip out
  • Building works
  • Decorating
  • Plumbing
  • Flooring chasing.
  • Manufacture and installation of laboratory fixed furniture, stools and mobile trolley.
  • Installation of Fume Cupboards.
  • Electrics and Data Installation
  • Installation of white boards and black out blinds.
