Yorkswood School, Solihull
Type: New build
Interclass was appointed by Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council to build a new single storey primary school in Kingshurst, Solihull. The new build project, which marked the completion of Solihull Council’s North Solihull Primary Programme, saw the existing outdated buildings replaced with a modern design and new facilities fit for 21st century learning.
Construction took place alongside the existing occupied school buildings, and therefore keeping the school operational and safe guarding the pupils and staff was the most important success factor for this project.
Now accommodating 540 pupils, the new school provides new classrooms, a school hall and studio, administration areas, new catering kitchen along with a new multi-use games area, all sitting alongside the adjacent and remodelled Brambles nursery which remained open for business throughout.
- Interclass supported the creation of local jobs throughout the project
- 90% of the supply chain spend on the project derived from within 20 miles of the site
- The school and on-site nursery remained open throughout construction
