Our Lady & St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School

Our Lady & St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, London

Our Lady & St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School is a brand new primary school built to serve the children of Poplar. The school was formed following the merger of Our Lady Catholic Primary School and Holy Family Catholic Primary School. Their aim is to create a successful and enjoyable teaching environment.

The project began on the 5th January 2014 and was completed on the 10th November 2014. This was a very unique project as the whole building was made out of wood. This in itself caused many different issues on site due to the shrinking and expanding of the wooden frame, however Carmel pulled together and came up with solutions that would work with the building. As this was a brand new school, Carmel were there from start to finish and were involved in both Mechanical and Electrical installations.

On the Mechanical side Carmel installed the following:

  • Mains Water Service
  • Natural Gas
  • LPH Heating
  • Domestic Hot & Cold Water to Sanitary Ware, Kitchen, Kitchenettes & Water Coolers
  • Natural Ventilation to Classrooms
  • Mechanical Ventilation to Kitchens & Toilets
  • Thermal Insulation to all Pipework
  • Sanitaryware and Plumbing
  • Automatic Controls for Heating, Hot Water, Underfloor Heating Systems and Heating Coils.

And on the Electrical side of the project our highly trained electricians installed the following:

  • Sub mains Distribution
  • Lighting & Emergency Lighting
  • External Lighting
  • Small Power
  • Fire/Disabled/WC Alarm
  • Security Systems
  • Access Control
  • Hand Dryer Installation
  • ICT Installation
  • Lightning Protection


The project was very challenging and although the weather was not kind to the team during the winter months of 2013/2014 the team worked well and delivered the project to a high standard. The school governors and staff are all very pleased with the school now combining St Josephs and Our Lady Catholic School onto one premises.
