Morgan Sindall Scoops £9m Project In Hampshire

Construction News Image
Morgan Sindall Construction has scooped a £9 million project to developa new extension for Calthorpe Park School in Fleet, north-east Hampshire.

The local area has seen considerable development with new housing and a modern leisure centre recently constructed. This in turn has increased demand at the highly regarded Calthorpe Park Secondary School where Hampshire County Council is investing money into providing 300 new school places for 11-16-year-old students over the next five years. This development brings further opportunities for enhancement of general teaching and specialist facilities, broadening the curriculum and allowing for greater community use.

The new block forms a two-storey impressive, 1,799 square metre building which will house a dedicated maths department, as well as two state-of-the-art ICT / technology classrooms. There will also be a new specialist ceramics studio and communal dining area, increasing facilities for community use.

The project enhances the existing campus by providing additional landscaped green social spaces for outside dining, teaching and a performance space with a new amphitheatre for outside productions.

Hampshire County Council Property Services has designed a practical building that complements and adds to the existing campus providing modern, energy efficient and delightful learning environments.

The maths classrooms form an orderly rhythmical brick façade with the ceramics room providing drama to the entrance with textured brickwork and a copper oriel window.

As part of the works, Morgan Sindall Construction will also carry out re-modelling to the existing school to provide two new science labs and additional library space in the heart of the existing school.

The main contractor was procured through the Southern Construction Framework (SCF) which offers support to public sector construction projects across the south of England.

Morgan Sindall Construction will ensure that their team contributes to social value initiatives throughout the duration of the project, and has developed an employment skills plan in collaboration with Hampshire County Council and Calthorpe Park School.

This includes providing training opportunities for a number of construction apprentices from the local area, as well as work placements for students and those outside of education. Informative events and lectures will also be held at the school to provide support for pupils interested in a future career in construction.

Construction will be carried out during the current school year, working to strict safety standards given the restrictions of coronavirus and a live site. Work is scheduled to complete on the project by next September, in time for the 2021-2022 academic year.
