Elliott provided Warren Junior School in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham with a classroom unit to facilitate school to school support for teacher development.
Elliott supplied this solution from their premium Classic range, this provided design flexibility both internally and externally allowing the customer to specify their exact requirements.
The single storey building consisted of 8 bays. The solution housed; four classrooms including a large, folding acoustic partition, a breakout area, 3 no unisex WC including disabled, a kitchenette and an office.
To ensure the aesthetics of the modular building were consistent with the traditional surroundings, we used a white render with a timber cladding between the window frames.
Throughout the install, weekly progress meetings were held with the school’s Site Manager and our Project Team to ensure key programme dates were met, with any issues raised dealt with in a timely manner to avoid any delays in meeting the completion deadline.
Groundworks commenced during the May term time and our subcontractors liaised closely with the school, working alongside the exam timetable to ensure no distractions at this crucial time for the students.
Access to site was limited to a single track through a housing estate with traffic management implemented to mitigate any additional risks. Elliott liaised with the school and letters were sent to local residents to inform them of the closure and work activities. A single point of contact was given for any enquiries and confirmation of activities for residents.
The Elliott team successfully completed the construction programme to the client’s satisfaction, on budget and on schedule.
