The project consisted of a 2-storey extension to a recently constructed school to provide additional sixth form teaching and social areas.  The works included matching high specification internal and external finishes to the existing layout, as well as external hard and soft landscaping.

Key Features

  • Early contractor involvement was welcomed by the client in relation to the M&E package
  • An alternative cladding package was sought, the same quality & standard requested by the client, but with cost savings
  • All works were carried out in a live educational environment without impacting on the existing facilities

Result

The end result matched the high standards set by the original school design, and the work was carried out within the strict programme and budget set by the conditions of the Academy funding grant.
