August 2017
Form of Contract
Delivery Type
Construct Only

Three extensions to the existing school building will accommodate additional classrooms and working areas to meet the increased demand for school places in the area.

Internal works will also be carried out to the existing staff room, classrooms, storerooms and the entrance area. As a result of 21 week programme, the school will be able to increase its capacity and enrol additional students. Careful programme management by the contracting team means the majority of works will take place outside of term time to minimise disruption and ensure the safety of students and staff members at all times. Any works required while the school remains operational will be kept to a minimum and carefully segregated.

“Wates Smartspace has committed to delivering a number of employment and training programmes as part of our programme. This will include apprenticeships, work placements and careers events such as student visits to the site to raise awareness of the construction industry. We also look forward to engaging with the wider community throughout our time on site to ensure that the work that we deliver leaves a lasting legacy within Sale.”
Andy Hughes, Business Unit Director, Wates Smartspace
