The project involved a new build (739m²) and alteration and refurbishment works to existing building (1825m²). Works included the removal of existing temporary classrooms and demolition of existing part subterranean boiler house for provision of new single storey extension to west plus new first floor extension to northeast wing linked by high level glazed bridge to new two storey extension to southeast wing with new vehicular access gate and staff carpark.

The extension included 1 no. GP room, 1 no. Multi-purpose room, 3 no. Resource rooms, 3 no. classrooms and 1 no. Staff room. 15 no. existing classrooms were refurbished.

The external works required demolition, excavations, new main services, new play areas and two carparks with user friendly access routes, fencing and landscaping.

As part of the renovation, and the new build works, the existing underground boiler house buildings, elements of the main school building, paved and tarred areas were removed to facilitate our installation of new underground services and the foundations for the new building works.

JJR carried out the construction works without affecting the day to day running of the occupied areas of the building ensuring that their heating, power and toilets operation were fully maintained. This was provided by ensuring that all affected areas and tie-ins were worked on outside the live schools working hours.
