Construction of a single storey classroom and WC block
Fifields Construction were awarded a contract by the Chulmleigh Academy Trust for the development of a new single storey
classroom block at the Chulmleigh Community College, a mixed secondary school.
The works comprised the construction of a single storey classroom block and separate WC block with a store-room to form a part of the existing college.
The extension was built on concrete foundations with a steel frame construction and a timber roof structure and ply deck with metal pitched roof coverings as well as new aluminium windows.
Externally, the building is finished with cladding and K-Rend render.
Internally the building has been fitted with underfloor heating as well as new mechanical and electrical services, suspended ceilings with new decorations and floor finishes and a new purpose made kitchen provided and installed by a specialist subcontractor under the supervision of Fifields Construction.
The project was completed within a timescale of 24 weeks and was carried out both in and out of term time. Working in this sensitive occupied environment required clear and careful co-ordination, flexible planning and effective site management to ensure the delivery of a high-quality construction project.
