ISG has secured its latest project via the influential North West Construction Hub framework, taking a £3.6 million scheme to deliver a new primary school for Warrington Borough Council.
The project sees ISG build a modern single-storey school at the existing Woolston Community Primary School site. On completion of the new facility in September 2013, staff and pupils will move across to the new building and the contractor will then demolish the old school to make way for landscaping, recreational areas and car parking.
The new steel frame school building has been designed to sit sympathetically within the surrounding built environment and features brickwork and cladding to its façade, with a composite roof structure. In addition to modern, well designed teaching accommodation, the new school includes a sports hall, spacious reception area, dining room and commercial kitchen, and a number of staff and administrative offices. The large external component of the project sees the creation of a new playing field, playground areas and attractive landscaping across the site.
ISG’s Jim Parker, managing director - North West, commented: “The North West Construction Hub continues to grow in strength and utility by enabling regional authorities to quickly and efficiently procure important capital projects. The importance of both maintaining and delivering high quality, purpose-built education facilities cannot be underestimated, and we are confident that this substantial investment in education provision will deliver a lasting and highly positive legacy within the local community.”
