On Friday 4th April 2014 paralympian Wendy Smith officially open the new school house which was named The Welcome Space. Levett Consultancy is proud to have played a part in helping Virginia Primary School develop the The Welcome Space into a modern resource for staff, pupils and the community. Our small part in this building project was to ensure users of The Welcome Space have a consistent ICT experience inclusive of network infrastructure, telephony and end user devices.
An exciting part of the The Welcome Space building plans was the introduction of a green roof which brings many environmental benefits. Evidence also shows this roof type lasts longer and stays in better condition than a traditional roof. To ensure pupils also have an educational benefit from the green roof, our consultancy and technical services recommended and installed a green camera for pupils to watch and record the green roof wildlife in the heart of the East End of London.
The end result now is Virginia Primary School have a new building that staff, pupils and community are proud of.
