Windy Arbour Primary School

Windy Arbour Primary School

Project Description and Delivery

Windy Arbor School comprised of a refurbishment, new build and remodelling of the school building and out-door classrooms. The works were split into nine phases. Each phase was decanted into temporary class-rooms to limit disruption and provide vacant access to Interclass for the period of the contract.

The School remained operational for the duration of the works. 102 Weeks (6 Week early completion)

Windy Arbor School is set at the head of a cul-de-sac road and is surrounded by residential properties . There was an existing nursery school also adjacent to the site.

The works at Windy Arbour undertook a multi-phased scheme, with the progressive removal of the external wall cladding, windows and doors and inner linings to expose the existing timber frame, which was then repaired and re-clad in new, highly insulated materials, with new high performance windows and doors. The roof was also overlaid with new cut to falls insulation and single ply membrane. Internally all areas have new mechanical and electrical installations, alterations to layouts, replacement of sanitary ware and cubicles, new flooring and redecoration.
