A new two storey link building now provides a new modern 6th form block enhancing the schools higher education facilities.

Linking the original adjoining 6th form block and existing music block the new facility provides 413m2 of additional teaching space.

Constructed on piled foundations the steel frame clad in an eclectic mix of modern construction finishes including glass, self-coloured render, timber cladding and aluminium, the new building makes a real statement against the rather outdated looking former 6th form block that now adjoins it.

Constructing new buildings within live school sites always provide logistical challenges. This project was no different with access only possible off a major highway serving the main school entrance. A planned strategy was developed by our site management in partnership with the school that ensured construction traffic, material deliveries, and waste removal did not impact on the schools day to day activities or in any way endanger the welfare of the students.

The school are delighted with their new modern teaching facility and commended our team for their professional management of the project.
