george salter academy opens
12 October 2015
George Salter Academy has recently opened in West Bromwich. Working for Balfour Beatty Construction, fabrik supported Nicholas Hare Architects on the design proposals for this Ormiston Academies Trust School. New build and retained elements of the existing school combine to form a series of terraced courtyards through the heart of the school.
Focusing on the specialism of English and performing arts, the courtyards provide integrated opportunities for performance with viewing areas and sufficient space for year group ceremonial events. The new entrance plaza and improved frontage provides a clearly defined identity for the Academy within the local community.
