Children in Need

A year on from her last Children In Need bake off, Director Helen Scott has yet again pulled out all the stops to raise over £150 for the charity this year. Helen bakes the most amazing cakes for friends and colleagues, taking orders in the run up to the big day and baking long into the night to deliver on time. Well done Helen on a great total raised !

Stunning school buildings in Southwark

We’ve undertaken two more substantial school projects for the London Borough of Southwark in combined contracts worth over £300,000. The first was to build an additional classroom facility for Keyworth Primary School in Kennington to help the school to ease the pressure on pupil numbers.

With a roll call of over 300 pupils the school wanted an additional modular classroom which we built here at our production facility at Langley Mill. It comprises four modules which combine to provide a new classroom, WCs, disabled WCs, storeroom and lobby.

We delivered the new classroom in time for the start of the September term and our installation team undertook all groundworks including foundations, external work and all mains services and connections.

Clad with Plastisol steel externally the school chose a soft Buttermilk colour for the external walls accented with brighter yellow handrails on the approach access ramps which run up to the main entrance door, with landing steps to the fire exit. White powder coated aluminium windows and doors also feature and a lightweight acrylic canopy on stainless steel brackets was fitted over the entrance door to provide shelter from the elements.

The main classroom area was fitted with Dune Max suspended ceiling tiles to provide good acoustics within the teaching area.

Grange School

The second school to receive a new classroom this September was Grange Primary School on Tower Bridge Road. For them we built, delivered and installed the same classroom facility but this time we finished the exterior in s more dramatic blue and black colour scheme.
As you can see for the photographs, access was tight but our amazing driver managed to squeeze the crane in through the main gates will only millimetres to spare, enabling us deliver the building in time for the school bell to ring.

New training facility for London Underground

Tubelines Cockfosters

At Cockfosters in London we have completed and handed over a £125,000 permanent on-site staff training facility for Tubelines (the trading name of London Underground).
The four 9.4m x 3m LinkPak modules have been double-stacked, to provide an open plan office space and toilet facilities on the ground floor connected by an internal staircase to an open plan training area above.

See our earlier article back in July with all the details of this super little project. We think it looks just great nestled into the embankment and will be a great place for staff to train.
