Instructions & Brief

TBFO was instructed and briefed to carry out a 2nd phase educational refurbishment over a period of 8 weeks, following on from phase 1 in the summer of 2022.

‘Founded in 1611, Charterhouse is one of the UK’s leading independent boarding and day schools, providing an outstanding education for boys and girls aged 13 to 18.

Set within an inspiring 250‑acre campus, conveniently located close to London and within 50 minutes of both Heathrow and Gatwick airports. With 17 grass sports pitches, 3 full‑sized Astroturf pitches, an athletics stadium, a sports centre, 24 tennis courts and a 9‑hole golf course, not to mention beautiful lawns and gardens, the campus is one of the best, if not the best, in the country.

Combined with a 235‑seat theatre and separate music performance and art display spaces, the School’s setting encourages pupils to contribute, and provides a safe community in which to explore and grow.’

Project Outcomes & Client Testimonial

The finished project works offers a fresh, revamped and revitalised space. Our estate bursar contact had this to say about working with us and the outcomes:

"I just wanted to write to thank you for all of the hard work that you and your teams have put in this summer on Ducks and Verites.

Once again you were on time and produced a high quality finish in both houses and undertook additional work as the project went along.

Your site agents were excellent and Leon in particular has received a huge amount of praise from the Verites house team and adjacent Gownboys housemaster.

The projects both look amazing and I feel certain that the pupils will be very pleased with their new spaces."
