ISG secures £4.5 million Leeds school project

ISG has secured its latest project via the influential YORbuild2 framework, with an appointment by Leeds City Council to deliver a £4.5 million extension and refurbishment at Hunslet Moor Primary School.

The project will enable the Leeds school to expand its intake from 45 to 60 pupil places from September 2018, increasing overall capacity at the highly regarded primary school from 315 to 420. 

A new, two-storey steel frame extension will link into the existing school and provide an additional six classrooms, alongside three new group rooms. 

An extensive refurbishment of the main school building sees ISG reconfigure accommodation to create a further three classrooms, install a new kitchen and upgrade mechanical and electrical services.

The school will remain open throughout the duration of the project, with ISG carefully phasing the programme to carry out work outside school hours and during holiday periods, with completion scheduled for autumn 2018.

Procured through the YORbuild2 capital works public sector framework, the project is one of four education schemes ISG currently has on site in the region, including the £14 million Leeds Arts University extension, a £3.7 million refurbishment to an all-through academy in Morley, and a £5.5 million new build primary school in Durham.  

Tim Harvey, regional director for ISG, said: “Across the region we currently have around £28 million worth of education projects on site, and recently handed over a further framework project, with the opening of the new £10 million Temple Learning Academy in Leeds. 

“It is inspiring to see the transformational change these new facilities have on pupils, teachers, parents and the wider community, and it is through efficient procurement vehicles, like the YORbuild2 framework, that we can hit the ground running and get these schemes to site quickly, while delivering high-quality and best-value outcomes to local authorities.”
