Education Advisory Services Expanding
Primmer Olds BAS continue to grow their education advisory service following successful projects with Hamwic Education Trust. Primmer Olds BAS have now been appointed to design and project manage the construction of a new sports facility at Upper Shirley High in Southampton. This follows the successful delivery of a new teaching block where the firm acted as designers, project managers and contract administrators on the tender and construction project at a Southampton school.
The brief was to provide an additional circa net 1270m2 of teaching space within the existing school site. The solution was to provide this on part of the School’s hard standing playground adjacent to existing teaching buildings and replaced old and tired portacabin buildings that were past their originally intended lifespan. The new facility included 8 classrooms, 2 DT classrooms and 2 offices over two floors. Temporary classrooms were hired for the duration of the works until the new teaching block was complete.
Following the successful planning (June 2017) and tender process carried out and managed by Primmer Olds BAS building consultancy team, construction commenced in September 2017. Following an 11 month programme, the teaching block was handed over to the School and Trust in early August 2018 allowing time for the School to move in, familiarise themselves and prepare for the start of a new School year in September.
