The work consisted of the construction of a timber frame building with a mono pitched seamed roof and associated electrical, mechanical, drainage and ground works. The new building was set in the playground adjacent to the existing classrooms of the School. New services ran from the existing classroom block and were completed out of hours to ensure zero disruption to the school.
The works were challenging during the early stages due to design errors, Pave Aways worked closely with the Architect and Engineer to provide a solution. The works were completed to a high standard and on time.
The head teacher of the school said:”On behalf of all the staff, governors and children at Bicton, thank you to everyone involved in the project over the past 4 months. The support and advice from the Local Authority and the contractors has been much appreciated and I personally did not imagine for one minute that the project would be as stress-free as it has been!Paveaways’ employees, and everyone they have contracted to work on site, have always been considerate and eager not to affect the day-to-day running of the school and I cannot recommend their services enough.”
