A complex extension to an existing primary school.
Client name: Reach 2 Academy
Construction Value: £1.7m
Project Type: Main contractor
Contract Type: JCT Intermediate
Tidemill Academy is a two-form entry primary school, with nursery. Originally built as part of a regeneration scheme, Savoy Construction was appointed by the school to provide additional facilities to this fairly new school.
The brief was to design and construct a new elevated teaching pod; provide an infill extension for additional staff facilities and undertake the installation of new air conditioning to existing classrooms.
- For the Pod: we created an elevated steel structure overlooking the playground with an elevated external steel walkway.
- The minor extension was created using the existing garden area between two storey buildings to convert into an internal space.
- The building services were upgraded with new air conditioning units to existing classrooms during Easter holidays.
“Our school has grown significantly, and we needed to provide additional space, Savoy Construction and their team used innovative ways to help us achieve this”.
