The project at Gatehouse School is phase 2 of the redevelopment. ARJ secured this £2.9m phase on a single stage competitive tender. The project sees the vertical extension of 9 classrooms, as well as the redevelopment of the nursery to form 3 further classrooms, additionally we completed the work from a previous phase.
Works started on site on 11th April; the beginning of the Easter holidays. ARJ then went about a planned work programme over three weeks. This included:
In order to achieve this programme of works we set-up the crane in the car park. The materials were lifted and connected to form the structure of the extension.
The key was to ensure no disruption to the operations of the school. This was possible through communications throughout and planning of the works in advance.
