Over five years of construction work has culminated with the completion of the final phase at Sybil Andrews Academy in Bury St Edmunds.
Located north of the town on the Moreton Hall estate, the academy has been built over a number of stages, with the final stage starting early in 2019 to construct an additional MUGA area and two new teaching blocks adjacent to the main Heart building.
What is significant is that the same project team that originally started the project in 2015 has continued throughout all phases of the build; working collaboratively to bring construction finally to a close, ready for the new school year this September.
Barnes Construction has been the main contractor for the scheme building not only Sybil Andrews, which is managed by the Unity Schools Partnership, but also the adjacent Skyliner Sports Centre run by Abbeycroft Leisure.
Concertus Design & Property Consultants project managed the build on behalf of the client, Suffolk County Council, and also provided a number of multi-disciplinary design services, which included architecture, interior and landscape, as well as structural engineering and building services.
