A new intake of students requires some additional space, and that's exactly what Pacy & Wheatley did for a primary school in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. We were chosen following a competitive tender to complete the large-scale education construction project, which included a single-storey extension which allowed for the existing primary school to accommodate for an additional 210 students.
The project included the construction of 7 new classrooms, integral stores, a studio hall, separate group rooms, cleaning stores, boys' and girls' toilets, communal spaces and cloakroom(s). Our works also incorporated a durable hard play area and extra parking spaces for staff, parents and visitors.
Working on expansion projects like these requires careful planning to ensure works are kept separate to the existing primary school users, but works were able to proceed with agreement from relevant parties. We ensured deliveries were made in a coordinated and timely manner so as not to affect the day to day activities of the school and segregation was maintained at all times. We even provided additional services at the school assembly and had a special visit from Ivor Goodsite in accordance with our Considerate Contractors Scheme and company ethos.
We worked tirelessly on the project alongside the school, Lincolnshire Council representatives and their appointed Kier Project Manager to ensure the project was delivered on time and under budget. We were commended on the project and hope to be able to work with Kier on future projects.
