General Contracts on site at West Lea School
Following the recent successful expansion of Brimsdown Primary School Borras are once again working with clients The London Borough of Enfield to improve the Boroughs educational facilities. This time in Edmonton where our General Contracts Division are on site at West Lea School delivering an ambitious £3.3m refurbishment and extension project.
West Lea is a specialist sports college providing ‘Learning for Life’ for pupils aged 4-19 with special educational needs. The scheme, which is scheduled to run for 50 weeks, has been broken down into two phases in order to reduce disruption to the day to day running of the school, which will remain fully operational throughout.
Phase 1, which began when we set up site in September, involves:
- The construction of a new two storey extension on the south side of the existing school building. The steel frame structure is being constructed on space that has been unoccupied since the demolition of several small out buildings
- Once complete the new building will provide an additional 4 classrooms on each floor, toilet blocks, storage space, lift and a new glazed entrance to the school (pictured below in an artist impression.). An opening will be formed to connect the new build to the existing school
Phase 2 is due to being in July 2018 and will run in tandem with the end of phase 1. Works will consist of:
- Alterations and refurbishments to the existing school including stripping out, new services, internal layout modifications and finishing works
- The creation of a new enlarged car park
Their nice and bubbly personalities made these repairs a very enjoyable experience. Every single room matched our expectations and didn’t leave anything to wish for.
