Holy Trinity Primary School
A new 1 form of entry expansion project to create a range of new accommodation on a tight, occupied school site in Manchester.
Key Features of the Project:
- ENGIE stepped in to this scheme when other framework partners were unable to meet the client’s requirements, delivering a successful project, on time and on budget.
- Offsite manufacturing methods were utilised in close liaison with the client to minimise disruption to the school and to reduce the construction programme by 15%.
- The site is in a very built up residential area, with homes bordering the school on three sides, working considerately and in collaboration with both the school and wider community was key to success.
- ENGIE’s own design and specialist technical staff worked with the original design team to implement an effective strategy to deal with contaminated grounds on site.
- In total, eight new classrooms were build, together with a new Hall, Dining, Kitchen, Toilets and meeting rooms to meet the needs of a growing school.
- ENGIE delivered a range of ‘added value’ benefits on the project, including visits for the school pupils to the off-site manufacturing facility, community events and school assemblies.
- ENGIE’s team met or exceeded all framework KPI’s on the scheme, notably securing 78.3% of local labour on the project, creating a very positive impact on the local economy.
“Key aspects of the success of this project were the clear and careful communications between all parties during both the design development and construction phases, ensuring that all aspects of the project design and delivery were simply and clearly explained to the Headteacher”
