Project Description

Demolition of the existing Nursery and construction of a new flat roofed extension. Extensive remodelling of the existing nursery area was carried out including demolition of internal load bearing walls, installation of structural steels, construction of new internal walling etc.

Extension and adaption of existing dining area to improve facilities and the formation of new toilet and wet areas were done including all services and finishes. Construction of new canopy entrance enclosure including aluminium entrance doors.


The programme was a very challenging 12 week programme with access limited to six weeks in the existing dining room and nursery areas. To successfully complete the project in the limited timeframe, careful planning of the entire works was required, using the latest Microsoft Project software to identify the critical path and identify the key sequence of operations.

Schedules were drawn up and orders placed well in advance to ensure that all materials and components were delivered at the required dates to achieve completion. Information Required schedules were prepared and regular meetings were held with the client and design team to ensure that no delays occurred during the contract period.

Co-operation and a team effort was the key to achieving a quality project on time.
