Project Description

Ashgate & Crossacres Primary School project comprised the refurbishment and extension of an existing school to collate two schools within the same site. The project involved a number of phases to minimise the impact on the existing school. The refurbishment of the 1950’s existing building, containing asbestos, to accommodate disabled pupils from Ashgate SEN school posed a great challenge on the services installation. The scheme included the installation of a new Foundation Block joining the two schools and a complete refurbishment of the existing.

Electrical Installation Brief: Working in close relationship with the school the main obstacle with this project was not to have an impact on the day to day running of the school. This included items such as: drilling at pre agreed hours, not during classes, receiving deliveries at agreed hours, not during morning or afternoon pick up periods etc. WMB have a long history of working in occupied buildings, we fully appreciate the needs of the client and the importance of keeping the normal operation of a building active at all times.
