Location Old Park Road, Wednesbury, WS10 9LX

Client Sandwell MBC

Project Description 

The client needed to provide a new 55 sq m classroom with two pupil toilets, classroom store, replacement study room and a cleaners store.

A single storey extension to the existing building was proposed – The works on site comprised the Design & Build of a new single storey classroom block. Following extensive demolition and enabling works and relocation of school buildings, features and equipment, the new building benefited from the speed and flexibility of our RoWeR system, constructed after we treated the mineworkings below the site area, constructed bespoke engineered foundations and a lightweight steel frame. The external walls comprise Trespa rainscreen cladding panels with aluminium windows and doors. The roof is made up of cold rolled steel & composite cladding insulation panels with a single ply membrane. Internal walls are lightweight partition construction. Extensive new M&E installations, comfort cooling, sprinklers and incoming services, drainage and external works comprising new play areas, parking and an extended resource room to relocate a PE Store.

All work was carried out within a live working educational environment.
