Our education experts are supporting Flintshire County Council’s Schools Modernisation Programme of investment, delivering a new three storey Art and Design Technology block for Castell Alun High School in Hope.
The Council, from its capital programme, investing in Castell Alun High School for a new three storey Art and Design Technology block that will include specialist classrooms along with general teaching spaces, offices and toilets. The project also includes the demolition of the current technology block to create additional parking and a replacement of the roof over the existing music department.
This Scape procured project will create a new and inspiring learning space for both students and teachers as well as providing employment and learning opportunities for our community. The total investment is just over £7.6m.
Willmott Dixon began work in October 2020 and the work is due to be completed by early 2022.
The Deputy Leader of Flintshire County Council, Councillor Carolyn Thomas, said:
“The Council continues to work to provide a high-quality sustainable education for all our learners. It was pleasing to visit Castell Alun High School to see the construction of the new building starting to take shape, the developments at the School will transform the learning facilities on offer and I look forward to seeing the work completed.”
Headteacher at the school, Paul Edwards, said:
“This exciting new learning block is being built to a high standard, to provide modern, first class facilities and the best learning opportunities for our learners and the wider community. I look forward to seeing this building develop over the coming months.”
Anthony Dillon, managing director in the North for Willmott Dixon, said:
“We are very proud to be playing our part in creating these exciting new facilities which will provide pupils with the very best environment to learn and develop.
“We believe in delivering brilliant buildings, transforming lives, strengthening communities and enhancing the environment so our world is fit for future generations; Castell Alun High School is a project that supports every one of those goals and we are committed to investing with local supply chain partners wherever possible as well as creating new local employment opportunities.”
