Case Study:

Birchington Primary School – New Classroom


Commencing in June 2016, BBS Construction are undertaking this design and build project, constructing a new teaching block, comprising 6 classrooms, to enable the school to increase capacity from 1 form to 2 form year groups.

BBS have already undertaken a considerable amount of works, including refurbishment and alterations to existing buildings, along with replacement and enlargement of the main car park and access, which was undertaken during the school holidays.

The project is valued at approximately £2.25million, and is due to complete in May 2017.

Scaffolding has now been removed from the outside of the building, and the internal partitioning is being installed. Decoration of classrooms and breakout areas will follow shortly, in anticipation of a handover by the end of May.
