Greig City Academy N8
GCA was one of the first schools to be re-launched under the Academy programme.
When the main entrance and administration building was re-planned and extended the staffroom was located on the ground floor adjacent to an external play area which in practice was less than ideal.
Spirit Architects were commissioned to relocate the staffroom - the school having identified an underused IT facility in an adjacent block as a potential location.
In a 6 week programme undertaken during the holidays and with a budget of only £40,000 the previously dowdy space was transformed into a bright, colourful and welcoming staffroom with modern facilities.
