Enhancing communitiesThe positive legacy brought about by this project inspired the team to create other legacies during the build. Work placements helped introduce students to new skills, and college students shadowed our team to learn about careers in construction.
Improving the environmentThe project is designed to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and an EPC A rating, making it one of the most sustainable secondary school campuses in the region. The building also exceeds air tightness regulations.
Working together with our supply chainThrough early customer engagement we were able to bring in supply chain partners at design stage. Through value engineering we were able to save the project a total of £2.5 million.
The specification and vision for this school set the highest levels for quality in construction.
Site levels posed another huge challenge. A compatively high increase of 1.2 metres was needed to prevent flood risk and maximise drainage into local attenuated ponds.
“There is a great sense of excitement about this stunning site. This is just a fantastic facility to have, not just for the school, but for the community as well.”John Jones
