BRIEF OVERVIEW

Two classbase standalone block, prefabricated timber frame superstructure, with external works and access ramps.

 

The project, as part of Norfolk County Council’s Framework for Construction Works, comprised construction of a standalone 2-classbase Teaching Hub, situated in close proximity to the existing Victorian school. The new building was formed with a contractor designed, prefabricated timber frame superstructure, erected over a pre-cast beam and block floor. External finishes include rain-screen and facing-brick cladding with a standing seam roof.

Early engagement with our supply-chain specialists ensured the timber frame was well coordinated and delivered two weeks ahead of programme. Varying ground levels required construction of a sequential ramp providing access for all. The project was completed within a live school environment, demanding stringent management of all deliveries, noise, vibration and safeguarding measures, allowing the school to remain fully operational throughout the project.
