Build Update – February 2019
Work on our new Sixth Form building has got off to a great start with our contractors, Link Contracting, preparing the site, putting in the site road and starting to dig in preparation for the foundations going in. By the end of February it is planned the foundations will be dug out and the concrete pouring/slabs will have been carried out ready for the steel frame which is due to arrive on site in March.
Build Update – January 2019
You may be aware that we have been granted planning permission and had funding from the Department for Education confirmed for the new 6 classroom Sixth Form Block. We have spent the last few months working with our project management team, AA Projects, and our main contractor, Link Contracting, to finalise the build details. Construction will run from 24th January to October and we aim to have the block in use from November 2019.
The first thing that will happen on site is the establishment of the compound. Link Contracting will be fencing off the build area, as well as their site office and welfare facilities, to ensure that the site is safe and secure.
Work on the build will take place Monday to Friday between 7am and 6pm. Link Contracting are very aware of key events on the school calendar and will ensure that disruption is minimised through the course of the build. Deliveries to the site will be restricted to avoid peak traffic times around school, i.e. the start and end of the school day for students, and all deliveries will be managed by a Banksman for Health & Safety purposes.
Regular updates will be posted on this page and also on the school Twitter account: @KNGSlife
