On behalf of our client we carried out the new build of the New Horizons SEN Academy in Chatham. The works including demolishing and rebuilding of the new SEN facility building. The works included new foundations, concrete slab, steelwork, new staircases, new roof, external wall construction, cladding and render, new windows and doors and complete M & E installations. External works included Paving, planting, fencing, all soft and hard landscaping in the surrounding areas to ensure the layout flowed.
As this block was new build we had to spend extra time and attention securing the area of works from the students. We used hoardings to segregate the works at certain points of the term time. The majority of the works were completed while the school was empty during the summer holidays. In order to keep to the client’s strict programme, and with the approval of the client, we had our operatives work evening and weekends on a rota to stay ahead of the works. We also had a site manager on site permanently to oversee the progress of the works.
