Work is under way on Oscott Manor new school scheme, building a new two-storey school in Birmingham.
BSP is the civil, structural and transportation engineer on the new facility for Oscott Manor School.
The SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) secondary school supports pupils with autism.
It is moving to a new site in Erdington, having outgrown its current building.
The new 29,923 sq ft modern educational facility will include a range of teaching spaces for ICT, design and technology, science and music, as well as general staff facilities and external play areas.
It will also include a multi-use games area (MUGA), a forest school with associated lighting and secure boundaries, staff parking and safe drop-off and pick-up areas for pupils.
Priority School Building Programme
Delivered under the Department for Education’s Priority School Building Programme and being built by G F Tomlinson, the school is expected to be completed in winter 2021. It will provide spaces for 120 young people aged 11 to 19.
Other members of the construction team include Bond Bryan Architects and Anderson Green for mechanical and electrical services.
The project is the latest in a long line of school, college and university schemes involving BSP Consulting.
The company has helped deliver nursery, primary and secondary school buildings across the UK. It has also worked with further education colleges and universities.
BSP’s expertise in this sector includes structural, civil and geotechnical design services for new build and refurbishment projects.
The Oscott Manor new School scheme development is being led by BSP’s Derby office.
