Some projects present challenges and a key role
of the programme team has been to facilitate and
smooth delivery, no matter what the complexity.
Winnall Primary School in Winchester is such an example, where a two classroom extension is being provided. The site is small with differing levels and work had to be undertaken and completed while the school was in use. The works required careful phasing, excellent communication with the school and careful site management to avoid any disruption to the education of the children.
The works also presented an opportunity to carry out re-cladding works to other parts of the school, which is largely timber framed, to improve its energy efficiency and reduce maintenance costs.
Working collaboratively with the client’s designers the contractor identified an innovative wall cladding solution which when pointed looks like traditional brickwork. It has totally revitalised the look of the school.
