Pier Construction were awarded the major works package on this £22.5 million contract. The project comprised the design and construction of a new Secondary School, with Academy status to enable the consolidation of two existing schools in Widnes.
The project has seen the facilities formerly housed in four buildings across two sites combined into a single site, with the provision of a contemporary and inclusive learning environment. It has been designed to sit within one vibrant and inspirational building. The project involved taking a classically designed 1900s grammar school and creating a 21st century learning facility. It has recently been awarded ‘Outstanding’ in the corresponding OFSTED inspection.
We were appointed as a major works package contractor by Vinci Group to deliver time and quality critical elements of the works for the new Academy. Delivered as part of the Building Schools for the Future the accommodation is designed for 850 pupils.
The new building provides high quality teaching pastoral, sports and science and technology space.
