This refurb and extension project was the construction of a second-floor classroom block on top of an existing two storey classroom block at St Thomas More School in Blaydon.  Works were carried out whilst the existing classroom block was in use and so minimum disruption was paramount.

During this project the client extended our scope of works at second floor level to provide two additional classrooms and further changes were incorporated into our works due to unforeseen conditions encountered within the structure/fabric of the existing building
