Our work within this school has now progressed over three phases, firstly small works refurbishing toilet areas but then onto a new 2 classroom extension, and then refurbishment of further areas, bringing the whole school up to a very high standard.

Phase I; Toilet Refurbishment and New Diabled Toilet Facility

Enabling works involved stripping out existing WC facilities including removal of sanitaryware, cubicles, etc. constructing new walls including forming new door openings and refitting out the toilet areas completely with new sanitary ware, cubicles, hand driers, lighting, flooring and decorations.

Also created was a new disabled WC facility and Staff WC Facility in an existing store area including constructing new walls and forming new door openings, provision of a new “Doc M” pack to the disabled WC and a shower (not disabled access) and provide new toilet, wash hand basin and hand driers. New lighting, flooring and decorations were then installed in both the Disabled area and the staff area.

Phase II; 2 New Classroom Extension

After carrying out a small amount of site clearance in the way of removal of steps, garden walls, hard surfacing etc. The main construction of the two classrooms consisted of traditional strip foundations, Masonry sub-structures, concrete pad foundations and concrete ground floor. The main frame superstructure was made up of steel with steel roof construction with metal composite clad roof. The external walls are in the main masonry with glazed timber screens and windows.

The extension is “fitted out” with doors, ironmongery, architraves, skirting, kitchen units etc and decorated and carpeted throughout. The heating installation is fed from the existing gas supply.

Phase III; Smaller further extension and Restof School Refurbishment and Alterations.

These works involved; extending the Main Hall into what was classroom 1, expanding the Staff Area including Headmasters, Administration and Staffroom which were all reconfigured. In the area formerly know as classroom 2, created library, and created 2 new Main Hall stores. Also demolish part of the gas house and create a new entrance and canopy.
