BSP are involved in the Polesworth school extension, work is progressing well on a new science block being built at the Staffordshire school.
Contractor G F Tomlinson is building the three-storey facility at Polesworth School, Dordon.
BSP is the civil and structural engineer on the project, which is due to be completed in autumn 2021 and is being built as part of the Department for Education’s Priority Schools Building Programme.
The architect is Bond Bryan and Anderson Green are providing M & E services to deliver this project.
The school is a mixed gender secondary school with pupils aged 11-18, and it is part of the Communities Academies Trust — a multi-academy trust comprising 17 schools in the West Midlands region.
The Bramcote Building replaces five existing teaching blocks which are nearing the end of their usable life and will be demolished by G F Tomlinson following completion of the new building.
Construction on the new three-storey 2,479m2 teaching block started back in June, and the steel frame and roof are now complete, with works progressing on the external envelope and internal partitions.
Once finished, the building will cater for Design and Technology teaching spaces, ICT teaching rooms, science laboratories and staff spaces, allowing the school to continue delivering the curriculum in a safe and quality environment.
This project is part of the DfE framework’s schools investment programme which aims to address urgent requirements for the replacement of buildings to provide improvements to the quality of teaching and learning environments.
