The successful handover of this all-through school was completed on time in early spring 2022. The two-storey building consists of a primary and secondary school, with a separate nursery, comprehensive sports facilities, specialist teaching rooms and special educational needs areas, with use of offsite fabrication by Wates’ PRISM facility.
Despite challenging ground conditions, the external landscaping was completed to an extremely high standard with woodland walk, outdoor classroom provision and 400 new trees planted onsite.
Exemplary collaboration, reprogramming of works, and innovative mitigation strategies were required to overcome extensive delays with the infrastructure and connecting utilities to serve the school, with an excellent relationship with the client maintained throughout.
Bohunt School will serve 1,620 pupils in Horsham beginning in the academic year 2022/2023.
The Wates team have shown the upmost professionalism, proactively managing the significant challenges faced outside of the site boundary that would have majorly affected the success of the project if it wasn’t for their drive and tenacity.
Despite numerous difficulties the works were completed so the school could open on time and were delivered to an extremely high quality, with a smooth and structured approach to handover.”
