Morgan Sindall completes work on £10 million Solihull primary school

Morgan Sindall has completed work on a £10 million primary school development which forms the heart of a new village centre in Chemsley Wood, North Solihull.

The Bishop Wilson Church of England Primary School is a key element of the ongoing regeneration of Craig Croft, North Solihull and was constructed for Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council.
The two-form entry school and nursery school will not only provide an education for local three to eleven year olds, but also houses the relocated St Andrews Church, an adult learning centre, community space, health facilities, and external areas including a multi-use games area and sports pitch.

Ian Courts, Cabinet member for Economic Development, said; “Regeneration is not just about bricks and mortar, it has to improve the lives and opportunities available to the local community. This is why our investment in education has been so vital to the North Solihull Partnership’s regeneration programme and to the future success of the young people in the area. I hope this magnificent building, alongside the new enterprise centre and health development, brings lasting benefits to the local community.”

Richard Fielding, area director at Morgan Sindall, said; “This is an important development for the area, forming as it does, the heart of the new village centre. It has been satisfying to bring our in-depth knowledge and experience in constructing schemes of this nature to bear on this project, and we’re delighted to have successfully completed it on time and within budget.”

The school is on track to achieve an environmental rating of ‘Very Good’, using the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM).
