March 2016

The new build is progressing well, with three buildings now demolished. Since Christmas we have had over a thousand tipper lorries on site, removing soil and masonry. This, as you can imagine has been quite a logistical exercise, which has gone smoothly, with little impact on the local environment. All material removed from the site goes for recycling, giving the project 0% to land fill, a great achievement.

The concrete piles (which the building will sit on) for the primary academy are nearly complete, so the steel framing will start on time keeping the completion and handover in December 2016 for the Primary academy on target.
