Carreghofa CP School


Remodelling of entrance and foyer.

Work Details

This project involved a new build extension to an existing school building to create an office for the head teacher, a staff room, a foyer and reception area for visitors, parents and children as well as improved safeguarding measures. Works included the installation of a flat roof, a secure door and door entry system and new disabled access ramp. The new extension was decorated throughout with mechanical and electrical installation including data cabling and extension to fire
and smoke alarm systems.
Works were successfully completed during term time with daily liaison with the school management team and staff members to ensure particularly disruptive
elements of the work did not conflict with the day to day operations of the school. Safe and secure access and egress was maintained for pupils, staff, and parents whilst the main entrance was remodelled.
A value engineering proposal was put forward by SWG which provided cost savings and reduction in the time taken to complete the project.
Utilising materials donated from a local builder’s merchant, SWG created a purpose built vegetable garden and chicken coop/run for the school chickens.
