Start of construction British School of Amsterdam
Finally it's time! On 26 July, construction company Heddes Bouw en Ontwikkeling put the first pile in place: this marked the start of the construction of the new building parts of the British School of Amsterdam (BSA).
The new accommodation in the former detention centre at Havenstraat 6 in Amsterdam will replace the three different BSA locations scattered throughout the city. The design for the redevelopment of this 19th century monument was made by atelier PRO in close cooperation with Van Hoogevest Architects and Buro Sant en Co. The new accommodation offers good accessibility, multifunctional learning and working areas, lots of natural light and varied outdoor areas with lots of greenery.
With respect for the historical value of this cultural heritage, a redevelopment of a healthy learning environment of 13,500 m² for 1200 pupils aged 3 to 18 has been initiated. According to the plan, the building will be put into use after the summer holidays of 2020.
