The Marlborough Primary and Special School project overseen by main contractor Mace saw the redevelopment by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to provide a new two form entry primary school in the heart of Chelsea. It has seen the old unsuitable Victorian school building on the site demolished and the construction of a new Marlborough Primary School.
Robust strategies were agreed with suppliers and RBKC highways. Utilising an online booking system with additional on-site traffic marshals and suspension of adjacent parking bays to create a holding pit-lane. Together with detailed method statements submitted and approved by the adjacent party wall surveyors.
Prior to any demolition works being undertaken careful planning took place including surveys such as R&D to determine the extent of asbestos material.
Careful planning and development works were undertaken in conjunction with the school to ensure the temporary school met their teaching requirements. A detailed time/motion study was also undertaken to ensure the school was moved with the minimal of fuss.
Construction stage management plans including logistics and community engagement were delivered which fully document how liaison with local residents was undertaken together with arrangements to control construction nuisance.
The project was able to reclaim more than 80,000 bricks from the demolition of the original school building.
98% waste diverted from landfills
Financial management was proactively managed for the duration of the contract.
To ensure the works did not unduly impact local residents, a Section 61 Agreement was obtained with specific agreements on working hours, delivery times and construction nuisance.
Both Mace and the supply chain provided extensive apprentice opportunities through appointment of an employment/skills manager and charter.
The handover plan, developed during preconstruction, ensured we adequately programmed and resourced RBKC’s handover requirements, this included a detailed handover checklist for our team.
