Thomas Sinden were appointed as Principal Contractor to undertake the demolition of the existing sixth form and drama block and the provision of a new detached single storey sixth form block and new drama studio, along with new covered link to the existing school and associated landscaping.
The construction of the new block comprised pad and beam foundations, precast concrete ground floor, steel frame, brick/SFS cavity external walls and studwork internal walling. Natural ventilation was installed using two systems, one through the roof and one through the façade.
These works were delivered as part of the Priority School Buildings Programme 2 funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
Our team maintained close liaison with the school at all times to ensure that the works were carried out in as safe and un-disruptive manner as possible to ensure the school operations continued as usual during the works.
