In Progress – Hartford SEN School

Our General Contract’s Division have been on site in St. Neots on this £3m design and build scheme since February 2016.

The project, which is on behalf of Cambridgeshire County Council, involves the conversion and adaptation of Huntingdon Regional College’s former St. Neots campus to provide facilities for the relocation of Hartford SEN (special educational needs) School.

The existing 1950’s building, which was used as a technical skills facility, has stood unoccupied since 2012 when the decision was made to relocate all courses to the colleges main campus in Huntingdon.

Demolition works and structural alterations to form new openings and walls will transform the buildings internal layout. When complete the school will feature 7 classrooms, a science laboratory, art and textiles room, food technology room, IT suite, offices, toilet blocks, recording room and dining room.

A fire damaged section of the building beyond economical repair was demolished at the start of the scheme. The construction of an extension in its place along with some of the existing structure will combine to home a new separate pre-school, which will be managed in isolation from the SEN school.
