R G Carter invited project partners and guests to celebrate the first major milestone in the construction of the new Sir Bobby Robson School in Ipswich.
On Monday 13th January, the first installation of the timber panels was lifted into place as part of the main structure for the new social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH) school. The development, situated on Lindbergh Road, will provide over 60 students with SEMH/Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), a dedicated teaching space, helping them to prepare for adult life and make a positive contribution to the local community.
The new school will accommodate students aged 8-16 years within its 15 classrooms, soft play and sensory areas, a new multi-purpose hall, staff and parent facilities as well as a kitchen and dining space. The installation of the timber panels as part of the main structure follows the successful completion of the groundworks towards the end of last year.
