A Grand Day Out in Romford and a Scottish Charrette
Walters & Cohen recently completed an extension to Towers Junior School in Romford. The official opening of the school took place on Tuesday 28 September 2010 and, in the spirit of the school, was enormous fun. Headteacher Marilyn Whiskerd talked proudly of their innovative new spaces and beautiful new entrance, which the pupils very enthusiastically showed off to guests after the ceremony. Architect Yuk Yee Phang told the audience how enjoyable she found the experience of working with the school, and the Lady Mayor of Havering garnered awe from the pupils in her robes and regalia.

The school looks fantastic and is clearly popular with all those who use it. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer client and were pleased to see the smart new school tracksuits sponsored by Walters & Cohen and contractor Lengard, a reminder of the positive changes that come from great teamwork.

Meanwhile, Michál Cohen spent that week in Aberdeenshire, taking part in a charrette to design a new 4,000 home community near Stonehaven and Portlethen. Working with international urban planners DPZ, renowned for their ability to masterplan large community developments, Michál’s expertise in education design proved very useful in making sure schools are well-placed in this vast, complex and fascinating project.
