Urban&Civic and Aviva Investors

Submission summary

The Houlton School project has fully realised the ambitions set for it: restoring the heritage of Rugby Radio Station and making it publicly accessible, creating a sustainable, distinctive and state-of-the-art school. An innovative and committed public/private partnership has created an iconic community facility in the heart of a new community, delivered on budget and on programme, almost entirely during a global pandemic!

Standing proud once again, not just as a preserved heritage building but as a vibrant, bustling school where children are learning and being inspired by how their school was part of our country’s most pioneering communications advances.
