Van Hasselt Centre, Cranleigh School

The van Hasselt, named after former Headmaster Marc van Hasselt, will house a suite of humanities classrooms, a dedicated English resource library and careers offices.

A large glass-roofed space will also be included, providing a social space and an area for learning seminars.

The new van Hasselt Centre is located at the Senior School, in the old squash courts. The opening of the van Hasselt Centre will allow existing classrooms in the Connaught Block to be converted back to their original use as boarding accommodation from January 2019 in order to create the fourth girls’ house, to be named Martlet (after the birds on the School’s shield).

“Cranleigh has always been a dynamic community that does not like to stand still. We are a school with a strong history of innovation and development. We were one of the first to create a successful co-educational boarding community and we have kept our boarding innovative and vibrant whilst maintaining our close-knit family ethos and relatively small numbers.”

"Having the doors pre-hung with locksets pre-cut saved on site installation time. The prehanging/cutting was obviously carried out very precisely as no issues arose during the installation. The doors and frames were also delivered prefinished, which again saved time on site and provided the client with a high-quality product to a factory finish which would have been hard to achieve in a site environment. All the goods were delivered on agreed dates and packaged to provide no damage in transit. Finally, the assistance received by your office pre and post-delivery has been great. I look forward to working with you again on future contracts."
