In just three years, Etonbury Academy has rapidly expanded from four hundred students to a capacity of nearly 1300 places. Savoy Construction was appointed by the school to undertake fast track refurbishment and extension works during a summer holiday six-week period.

This project had many facets to it and was a great success, with all works being completed on time:

  • Conversion of existing multi-use classrooms into a multimedia room, drama studio, music room and offices.
  • Creation of a 64-student lecture theatre.
  • Creation of unisex student toilets.
  • Refurbishment of gym.
  • Construction of a new office for the school Principal.
  • Acoustic improvements to communal staircases.
  • External rendering and decorations.

“As a rapidly growing school, we needed a team that could deliver on their promise – to complete all the works within the summer holidays.  Savoy Construction did exactly this and we were able to open on time without any disruption to the new school year”.
