Project Description

Construction of Newbuild Single Storey Foundation Unit of traditional Cavity Wall Construction on strip foundations with flat roof.

Demolition of existing Nursery Building.

Flat Roof extension to the front of the existing building.  Refurbishment of 3 classrooms to the rear of the School and Reception area. Extensive Mechanical and electrical works.  External Works.


This was a major scheme completed whilst the school needed to run at full capacity.

In order to achieve this and the completion date of the new term in September 2017 programming was key.  Full use of the school holiday period was made to progress the works. February half term was used for the initial site set up and access track. Easter Holidays saw the breakthrough and steelwork install take place for the front extensions.  Extensive M&E works were carried out in the Easter break and May Spring bank.

The summer holidays saw the biggest push with over 30 operatives on site some working 12 hour days 7 days a week to ensure the extensive works in the existing school completed. This resulted in a massive achievement in a very short time period.
