Expansion of school by 1FE providing an open and welcoming entrance to give the school a presence in the local community.
The project involved the expansion of Robert May’s Secondary School in Odiham by 1FE, which included a two-storey new-build block and refurbishment within the existing building. External works included demolition of the caretaker’s bungalow and remodelling of the carpark; as well as works to the MUGA to the rear of the school and a grass playing field on a steeply sloped area adjacent the school. As part of these works, the team faced two key challenges;
To enable the new coach drop-off, a new carpark was built first, where the caretaker’s bungalow was located.
Pupil/ pedestrian routes were improved during construction works by directing them along hoarded/ fenced routes to and from the buses and emergency access routes to muster points. Deliveries were only allowed between drop-off and pick-up periods with the construction site gates closed outside these times. We also chaired weekly meetings with the school to discuss the forthcoming works and anticipated vehicle movements. Daily ‘Stand Up’ meetings were undertaken with all operatives on site, to make sure they were aware of what was happening on site that day.
The proactive approach and professional team meant communication between all parties, including the design team and the school was productive, with relationships maintained to the end of the project. Early liaison with the supply chain ensured professional buildability advice and working closely with the school we were able to minimise disruption. The client was also pleased with the successful delivery of the project, giving us a recommended score of 10/10.
