About This Education Project

Wrotham School’s new sports hall was constructed of a steel frame on a concrete slab. Extensive piling and drainage works were carried out to enable a streamlined construction process. Specialist FF&E including bespoke school sports equipment, have also been installed to ensure the new hall sets an exemplary benchmark in physical education.

Since the construction was taking place in a live school environment, a bespoke customer care methodology was implemented to ensure site users were protected. The construction team worked to ensure that all school pupils and staff were aware of the risks involved with construction. For example, the delivery team gave an engaging presentation to the pupils, which informed them about local site risks and provided information about careers in the construction industry.

Grange Park School, a specialist facility for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, is located on the northern border of the site. The construction team recognised the vulnerability of Grange Park School’s users and understood the importance of minimising risk and disruption to both Wrotham School and Grange Park School. As a result, we implemented  weekly review meetings between all stakeholders, a robust segregation strategy, an approved traffic management plan with suitably cleared banksmen and a security clearance system for all site operatives, including enhanced DBS checks for Logan Site Management.

Client feedback

The sports hall is fantastic. The quality is great and we have all been impressed at how well we were all able to work together to finish the build in a global pandemic.
