East Bergholt High School

“In order to achieve a successful result, we supplied full design and management services, with our integrated teams working collaboratively with the client from project inception to completion.” Andrew Lightfoot, Senior Building Surveyor, Concertus

The Brief: We were required to provide an extensive range of services to help East Bergholt High School achieve its vision of improving selected spaces and building services. We were successfully appointed due to our ability to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for all services, complemented by our sector reputation and partnership working with Suffolk County Council.

The Scope: The school wanted to upgrade its A and C blocks; replacing all curtain walling, doors and windows. The A Block, containing the main entrance and food hall, also required an extension in order to create more space. Finally, a replacement and upgrade of the A block’s boiler and plant room was required. It was vital for the design to provide a fresh and modern appearance, whilst keeping in-line with its surroundings.

In order to achieve a successful result, we supplied a full design and management service, with our integrated teams working collaboratively with the client from project inception to completion. During the project, we reviewed all associated elements, in terms of maintenance and incorporated these within the scope of works where possible.

Result: All of the project objectives were satisfied and the end result is an aesthetically pleasing, yet functional addition to the school, alongside improved thermal efficiency of the A and C blocks.
