Construction of a £6.3 million extension to Marshalls Park Academy in Romford has been marked with the burying of a time capsule, under what will be the ground floor corridor in the new building.
Joined by representatives from the Academy, the Council, and the construction team, Havering Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Children and Families, Councillor Robert Benham, Headteacher Neil Frost and Contracts Manager for Barnes Construction, Mark Whinney, helped head boy and head girl, lower the capsule into position.
Barnes started work in September last year on the two-storey extension, which will provide 16 new classrooms, a dance studio and changing facilities. Designed by KLH Architects, with Superstructures assisting with the structural engineering design, the new accommodation is being built on land that housed the old staff car park.
The extension forms part of Havering’s schools’ expansion programme, which will see the Council investing more than £23 million into its schools this year in order to accommodate more children and improve the facilities available.
