Over the years Innova has successfully completed numerous projects during term time, keeping noise and disruption to a minimum. Read how Aberystwyth University completed their refurbishment during term time.

 Stockport Grammar School

Stockport Grammar School already boasts an excellent reputation and dedicated staff, however to encourage lesson engagement further, and to give teachers and pupils the facilities they deserve, an upgrade was needed for one of the older chemistry classroom.

By working closely with the school and prioritising the needs of both the students and teachers using the classroom, Innova were able to design a cutting-edge chemistry lab that users can take pride in.

The new state-of-the-art lab will ensure the quality of teaching and the students’ learning experience is enhanced.

As part of their plans to improve its science and technology facilities, historic preparatory school Dulwich Prep London wanted to create a new build extension to sit between two existing buildings.

Working with architects Lee Evans Partnership and building contractors Quinn London, Innova designed science laboratoriesfood technology roomsdesign technology rooms and support facilities to match the school’s high standards.

Contemporary, high quality and spacious, the new science laboratories, food technology and design technology rooms at Dulwich Prep School deliver an education environment to match the school’s ethos of ambition and excellence.

“We would certainly recommend Innova again and ask them not to change their approach to a project in anyway.”
