Construction of a new 10,043m² three-storey 1,359-pupil secondary school on a live site. Works included the refurbishment of an existing sports hall, and the complete demolition of the existing school. Other features include a new 3G all weather pitch, along with extensive hard and soft landscaping.

Through our site-specific logistic plans, we ensured the existing sports hall remained in full use for the first 40 weeks of the programme with evening and weekend community access. The project was a awarded with a Considerate Constructor Scheme Bronze award for demonstrating an extraordinary commitment to improving the image of construction.

"The result is fantastic and will be a real asset to the community for many decades into the future – a testimony to the partnership and management by you all.”
