Project

Oulton Broad Primary School

Brief

“It was a pleasure for the team to deliver this important project. Increasing SEND school places in the area will undoubtedly benefit local children and their families. The space we have built was designed perfectly for its purpose by Concertus, and we would like to thank them for their support throughout.”

Simon Hubert, Contracts Manager, SEH French Limited

 

 

We were asked to provide a unit that would meet the needs of Key Stage 1 pupils with  Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). The standalone extension needed to create a state-of-the-art environment to support children, allowing them to learn and grow at the school.

This project was necessary to ensure children in Suffolk could be educated in an environment which would help them to fulfil their potential.

Scope

We collaborated with the client and end user to understand their requirements and allow us to incorporate their feedback into the design concepts.

Regular engagement sessions with the end user allowed us to ensure their requirements were met. Following an early meeting to  present our plans, we were informed that the school needed more storage. Our team accommodated this within the revised plans and kept the end user and client updated throughout. In addition to the new block (including a classroom, group room, sensory space, and accessible toilets), we provided landscaping works, an additional car park fitted with electrical vehicle chargers, and upgrades to the school’s electrical supply.

This scheme involved a new access and crossing point onto the highway for the car park, as well as works for the service connections. By liaising closely with Highways we were able to manage the highway works (including highway permits and inspections) without the programme being impacted.

“We are incredibly proud to be working on another important project to increase SEND provision in Suffolk. Oulton Broad Primary School provides local children with a great space to learn, and this extension will compliment that. We’d like to thank Suffolk County Council and Concertus for the opportunity to be a part of this project.”

Simon Girling, Director, SEH French Limited

“The specialist places at Oulton Broad Primary are part of the County Council’s £45 million SEND Transformation Programme. We are really pleased to be working with an outstanding primary school to deliver much needed specialist places in the Lowestoft area. These places will make a huge difference to the lives of the children who attend and to their families.”

Regular engagement sessions with the end user allowed us to ensure their requirements were met.
