Ingleton Wood were commissioned to undertake a feasibility study to explore the construction of a new teaching block to allow an expansion of the current enrolment of the school by one form of entry, for an additional 150 pupils. In addition, a new entrance to the school was required for safeguarding purposes which saw the provision of a new pedestrian crossing which will alleviate health and safety concerns with pupil movements to and from site.
The new teaching block consisted of four general purpose classrooms and two media rich classrooms as well as office and ancillary accommodation. In conjunction, the existing school accommodation was reviewed. To achieve a solution, existing faculties were relocated and remodelled. This consisted of the conversion of the existing science laboratory into technology space adjacent the existing technology faculty. Three existing general teaching classrooms and two offices were converted into two science laboratories, one to replace the laboratory lost to technology and one required for expansion.
In addition, the existing music block was extended and refurbished providing additional music teaching space and practice classrooms as well as the extension of existing dining facilities.
Ingleton Wood provided a multi-disciplinary service including all architectural, civil and structural, mechanical and electrical design, full tender and procurement delivery all contract administration and CDM responsibilities, from inception through to completion.
The works were funded from Local Authority Section 106 (S106) Agreements, as well as A contribution from the school.
All works were carried out within a confined environment with the site remaining in full operation for the duration of works, involving meticulous phasing and programming strategies. The project was completed on time within budget.
