Hayes Higgins Partnership is providing Civil and Structural & Mechancial and Electrical Engineering Services and Design and Supervision Services for this project which is been constructed under the GCCC Form of Contract.

The project consists of the construction of an extension of approximately 3,118m², plus associated refurbishment and site works. It is proposed to retain the majority of the 1975 block. This block has been maintained and works have been carried out to it, however the existing roof will need to be replaced. It is proposed that the extension be located to the North of the school in a 2-3 storey block. This is likely to involve demolition of the single storey 4 classroom wing. A central location for the G.P Hall is proposed, replacing the existing hall. Classrooms in the existing 2 story block require access for a new corridor which should be provided.

There is potential to provide some of the required extension at this wing also. There is a listed building on site.  This has been discounted from the project and does not form part of the brief.
