Pier Construction Ltd was awarded and completed the brickwork contract on this £25 Million scheme to design and build a new education campus in Liverpool as part of the £500m Building Schools, Skills, Success scheme (BSSS), which will see every secondary school in the city either re-built or extensively refurbished under the government’s Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme.
The campus will provide new facilities for King David High School, Primary School and Kindergarten and the Harold House Jewish Community & Youth centre as part of a single integrated building on the current high school site. Situated on the single largest Jewish education campus in Europe, King David accepts students from all faiths and the new facilities are open for use outside school, to all members of the local community.
The Secondary High School specialises in humanities and the high school elements of the new campus facility will include flexible learning environments equipped with wireless internet access, allowing classrooms to accommodate new teaching styles and encourage more pupil interaction.
