The project will involve the design and construction of a new building to accommodate 840 additional students at Beal High School in the London Borough of Redbridge.
The school, which caters for pupils ranging in age from 11 to 18, will be expanded from an eight form entry school to a 12 form entry, with the design and construction of a new building to accommodate Key Stage Three students.
Morgan Sindall and its design partners, DLA Architecture, won the contract to design and construct the building after an eight-month consultation with the school and the borough council. The expansion is being managed by Quantem Consulting.
The new building will comprise general and specialised teaching spaces, a learning resource centre, assembly hall and sports hall and the construction of external hard and soft landscaping.
The new building is aiming for a BREEAM Excellent rating and includes several sustainable features such as rainwater harvesting, photovoltaic cells and a combined heat & power (CHP) plant.
Morgan Sindall area director Bob Ensch said: “We have enjoyed an extensive consultation with the school and the council during the procurement process and are looking forward to working closely with them, and our design partners DLA Architecture, to deliver this exciting project.”
