West Hill School project gathering pace
The construction of the brand new West Hill School in Leatherhead, Surrey is continuing to progress at speed, with The McAvoy Group on track to hand over the building in early August.
The new school, which will incorporate classrooms, teaching training areas, a food technology room, a library and staffroom, is connecting two separated buildings on the site currently, with a height difference of 870mm.
Construction of the new school building began in January 2017, at McAvoy’s manufacturing facility in Lisburn. McAvoy were on site on 21st March 2017 to begin installation of the bespoke modules, with the project on schedule to be handed over on 8th August. To offset the height difference in the existing buildings, McAvoy was able to incorporate a ramped gradient within the design, nullifying the height difference.
McAvoy is facing a number of other challenges on this project, namely the need to use a neighbouring school for access, which along with the two current buildings on site, are all live.
Further updates on West Hill School will be provided in the coming months.
