ISG awarded Bury special needs school contract

5 Aug 10 ISG has been awarded a £9.1m construction contract by Bury Council to build a new special education needs (SEN) school in Radcliffe.

ISG has been awarded a £9.1m construction contract by Bury Council to build a new special education needs (SEN) school in Radcliffe.

Millwood School will replace an existing nearby facility and is being built on a 2.3 hectare site, formerly the grounds of the recently closed Radcliffe High School.

ISG will build a highly sustainable single-storey steel frame structure, which features a central communal element and three distinct teaching clusters.

The school is designed to achieve a BREEAM excellent rating and incorporates a ground source heat pump, rainwater harvesting and re-use system, roof mounted photo voltaic arrays and natural ventilation.

The contractor will also utilise structurally insulated panels (SIPs) to deliver a highly insulated building with greater levels of air tightness than more conventional methods.

Providing specialist support and services for children aged between 0 and 11, Millwood School includes a range of purpose-built facilities including a hydrotherapy pool, sensory room and carefully designed outdoor space.

Externally, ISG will create a new floodlit multi-use games area as well as three sensory gardens, a bio diverse habitat and extensive landscaped areas.

The project is scheduled to commence in September and will be completed towards the end of 2011.
