The new block provides maths, science and technology classrooms, as well as a studio and changing facilities. It was constructed using piled foundations, a beam and block floor and a steel frame with Metsec infill for the external walls.
Delivery on a live school site required careful programming, and a close working relationship with the Academy’s management team. Deliveries were programmed to be outside school drop off and pick up times, and robust hoarding segregated our works safely. The project was also delivered under the Construction Logistics and Community Safety Scheme (CLOCS), demonstrating our consideration of the impact of our activities on health and safety beyond the site itself.
We ensured that construction delivered meaningful benefits for both the school and wider community. Activities included holding a careers afternoon for year 11 students, arranging site tours, placing a time capsule, and hosting two work experience students on site for 1 day a week. Barnes Construction also sponsored a local youth football team and placed signage within our canteen to encourage operatives to support nearby businesses.
“From the first tender meetings, through the pre-construction stage and into the build, the Barnes team have been both friendly and reliable, and demonstrated a real understanding of the logistics of working on a school site surrounded by students. The team planned carefully around the logistics of the school day, including all their subcontractors, in ensuring that they delivered and worked at times that suited our needs. Barnes provided opportunities for our students to visit the site from promotional materials to career talks, to apprenticeships, through to promotional opportunities. In terms of the final build, we are very pleased with the outcome, and especially how they have realised the vision of integrating a modern build as an extension of classic 1920’s red brick school building. I would happily recommend Barnes Construction for any school build project.”
