Send CofE Primary School
The Send CofE Primary School project involved the demolition and removal of an existing classroom. Ashley Group (Main Contractor) were appointed to complete this phase of works. With the works commencing within a sensitive school environment, Ashley Group had to be considerate and minimalise disruptions to the surrounding environment. Once Ashley Group successfully demolished and removed the existing structure, the project required the design and construction of a new replacement SIPs modular classroom building.
SIPs panels were specified as the fabric for this build due to the flexible design capabilities the system offers. Typically, within educational applications, there is a desire to create large and spacious rooms, decorated with bright colours, in order to invite in pupils to a warm, comforting and openly stimulating learning environment. SIPs modular panels are the most effective solution to achieve these characteristics. As the SIPs panels themselves embody structural integrity properties there is not an over reliance on steel/glulam frames to assist in accommodating loads, typically a common situation in direct comparison with timber frame based construction and traditional construction methods. Ashley Group returned to site once the SIPs structure was erected to provide the full turnkey package. These included application of the external finishes and the complete internal fit-out and decorations.
The collaborative relationship between Ashley Group and SIPTech Construction once again delivered another successful construction build. This project demonstrates the way in which both contractors work in cohesion to ensure that the construction works are conducted in a considerate and conscious approach when measuring the impact of disruptions to the surrounding environment.
