Recently the firm has worked on South Hill Primary School in Hemel Hempstead on behalf of Hertfordshire County Council. The 60 week project involved the design and build of a three storey classroom block along with external works to provide a new car park and playground
Works were phased to reduce disruption to the live school environment. Phase one, which began in April 2014, involved extensive landscaping works to provide a new, larger playground and sports field area complete with two multi use games area and activity equipment. During the second phase a temporary classroom block was utilised whilst internal alterations to the existing school were undertaken, including refurbishing the toilets and group rooms.
Phase two also involved the erection of a new classroom block; the three storey structure was constructed with a steel frame and a structural insulated panelling (SIP) inner leave surrounded by colourful Trespa cladding, solar panels on the roof and economic air pumps. All of these features have provided the building with an impressive energy rating.
Linked to the existing school the new extension now provides an additional eight classrooms, staff offices, toilet blocks and a new main reception and entrance.
The three million pound scheme of works was awarded through the Smarte East Framework agreement with Ingleton Wood acting as the architect and Artella as the QS.
During this project the site team developed a good relationship with school staff and worked together to develop the design.
Borras also supported the schools charity summer fair, donating a Mini iPad as a prize and organising a mini digger for the kids to play with on the day.
