Further multi-disciplinary appointments with BAM on Cornish schools

9th Apr 2018

Hydrock is delighted to be supporting BAM Construction to deliver a range of new teaching facilities at two major Cornish education establishments.

The schemes are funded through the second phase of the Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP2) from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), which is refurbishing and rebuilding school buildings across the country. Hydrock’s Devon and Cornwall-based teams are delivering building services, civil and structural engineering, flood risk assessments, acoustic engineering, transport planning and ground investigation services on the schemes.

Cornwall’s largest school, Newquay Tretherras, will see the construction of a new teaching block to provide classrooms, kitchen and servery, hall and activity studio, along with changing facilities and flood-lit tennis courts.

Helston Community College is situated across two sites, north and south. This programme will result in a new teaching block on the north site which will also provide a dining hall, sports hall and ancillary accommodation, with existing buildings being subsequently demolished to accommodate modern sports pitches.

Working collaboratively with BAM Construction and architects, Stride Treglown, our work across both sites prioritises the importance of keeping services and utilities running to existing buildings while others on the campuses are being demolished.

Work on both projects has begun on site and hand over is expected in early 2020.
