Brick and Blockwork facades and internal partition walls to provide a school for 1,800 pupils aged between 3 and 18. Pyramid Builders Ltd’s package included brickwork facades to the on-site renewable energy centre, as well as curved internal brickwork feature walls following the contours of the unusual drum shaped atrium.

The Chobham Academy project was successfully completed in 2011 whilst working within the very high standards and logistical constraints of the Athlete’s Village on the Olympic Park. During the London 2012 Olympic Games, the college was used as the testing laboratory for the Athletes. Post-Games, Chobham Academy became a vital educational facility for the legacy stage of the Olympic Park development.
