French International School Extension
Rooftop bus stop created to improve access
The construction work for the new five-storey secondary school included 32 classrooms, a gymnasium, a library, a canteen, a covered playground, a basement car park, administrative offices and staff quarters. The building project was completed within 19 months.
A major overhaul was also needed to improve access to the school which could only accommodate cars. To solve the problem, Dragages proposed to construct a bus access platform on the roof, linking the school to the main road via a bridge. The innovative design successfully created an efficient loading and unloading point for the school children.
