NEWLANDS SPRING PRIMARY SCHOOL
Project: Construction of 2 classrooms, sensory & safe room for children with special educational needs
Client: Attain Academy Partnership
Services provided: Employer’s Agent, Principal Designer
Contract value: £419k
Newlands Spring Primary School, part of the Attain Academy Partnership, is a large primary school in Chelmsford.
The school wanted to build 2 new classrooms to increase facilities to accommodate pupils with special educational needs, under the GROW programme.
In addition to new classrooms, the GROW facility also offers a safe room, a sensory room, a wet room and kitchen.
The facility meets BB104, as well as satisfying the SEN requirements of Essex County Council.
Daniel Connal Partnership was appointed as Project Manager and Employer’s Agent on this JCT Design & Build contract. We also fulfilled the Principal Designer role, at the pre contract stage.
At the start of the project we assisted the client with the funding application process for the project; meeting with Essex County Council (ECC) and providing all the required information. We also maintained regular liaison with ECC’s project manager, who maintained a monitoring role throughout the build.
We were delighted to complete this very rewarding project under budget and five weeks ahead of schedule.
