Sheringham Primary School
The Sheringham Primary School project works involved the design, delivery, installation of a ready for occupation new modular building on an external play area and sloped bank. Once again SIPTech Construction (SIPs subcontractor) and Ashley Group (Main Contractor) collaborated to deliver a full turnkey solution for this construction project.
The design included for a basement storage/plant room area to be constructed out of reinforced concrete. This substructure will act as a level foundation for the Kingspan TEK® SIPs Panels to sit upon being situated upon a sloped bank.
With the works commencing within a sensitive school environment, both SIPTech Construction and Ashley Group had to be considerate and minimalise disruptions to the surrounding environment. Having accumulated a wealth of experience in delivering construction projects within the education sector and a proven track record, Ashley Group and SIPTech Construction offer the perfect combination in delivering a successful construction project.
The new modular building will act as an Auxiliary SEN classroom, to allow for special needs and disabled pupils to receive intimate and constructive interaction with their allocated teacher in a relaxed and personalised environment.
SIPs panels were specified due to the advantageous speed of build that the Kingspan TEK® Building System offers, in direct comparison to other modern methods of construction and traditional methods of construction. This was crucial as the school criteria demanded for minimal disruption during the construction phase, exemplified as the erection of the SIPs structure was completed within 1 day.
The design element of the SIPs incorporated a large open pan spacious room area, in order to promote open and stimulating communication amongst the staff and the pupils in a relaxed environment away from the other busier area’s in the school.
The site was handed back to Ashley Group once the SIPs structure had been erected to provide the full internal fit out, M&E installation and apply the external brickwork/render system finish. The flat roof was fitted with firrings and decking to avoid water congregating on the flat roof by providing a small pitch for the water to flow in a direction off the roof.
Another successful education sector project delivered to the highest accord by SIPTech Construction and Ashley Group combining again. The school was delighted with the full turnkey construction solution provided and the pupils and staff were able to use the new classroom the day after the final handover. The proven track record between SIPTech Construction and Ashley Group demonstrate the ability to conduct construction works in a considerate and conscious approach within sensitive live environments.
