Creating a new secondary school in Streatham Vale, London
- Creating 900 new school places
- Carefully designed to compliment school needs and that of community
- Completed ahead of schedule and defect free
Our team of educations specialists have created a new 900 place secondary school in Streatham Vale, London, creating a rich and vibrant learning environment for both students and staff.
Watch our customer talk about the project:
The old and outdated original school building was fully demolished and replaced with a new secondary school which was carefully crafted to compliment both the modern needs of the school environment and that of the neighbouring community.
Procured through the Southern Construction Framework, the new school facilities include a sports hall and changing complex, 4 multi-use games areas including 3G grass surfacing, ICT suite, modern teaching classrooms and attractive new landscaping including specific play areas around the campus.
The executive head teacher said:
“I just wanted to drop you a line to record my gratitude for the tremendous team that have lead the Woodmansterne Secondary School project. I have a natural inclination to praise where it's due and in this case it is a little overdue!
“The community engagement and learning that has happened as a direct result of this team has been phenomenal. I had very low expectations of what contractors can and will deliver in terms of service and engagement! Your team has gone above and beyond for us as a school in a multitude of ways and always with a smile on their face.”
Giving something back:
Our team took part in many workshops with the students, telling them about the roles available in construction and the opportunities for women in the industry. They also created a community fridge (food bank) on site which was sponsored by the local Co-Op with daily food deliveries. This was located in a position to allow local residents, pupils and staff to get free food with no questions asked. The team was delighted to move this into the permanent landscaping allowing the school to continue its use going forward.
The school handed over ahead of schedule and defect free in April 2019.
