Building Programme which is rebuilding or refurbishing school buildings in the very worst condition across the country. Phase one of Bishop Barrington School was the first project to be handed over and Kier completed a new teaching block situated within the middle of an existing building. Kier will continue on-site to deliver phase two of the works which will include the demolition of the old school building, then completion of the remaining external works.
The second project was St Benet Biscop in Northumberland, this was a classroom extension and sports block for 1100 children and 200 staff. The works took place in a live environment and all activities were planned to allow the school to remain operational throughout.
The final handover was the completion of Toner Avenue Primary School in Hebburn and this was a new build for South Tyneside Council and the DfE. Kier has completed the demolition of the existing building, as well as hard and soft landscaping including the car parking.
