Following a successful tender bid we have recently been awarded a £3.2 million scheme to provide a new extension and remodel an existing classroom block for St. Wilfrid’s College in South Shields.
Currently the school are utilising space in the building that were not originally designed for teaching the numbers they are currently being used for. Works are to include a new teaching block as an extension to the existing two storey Science/Art & Technology block. The new structure is proposed to be located on the current footprint of the single storey Resistant Materials Workshop extending to the north, forming the fourth side of the existing courtyard. It is proposed to provide three science labs, 1 replacement resistant materials workshop, 6 new general classrooms and associated support and ancillary facilities to the main teaching block. In addition, internal refurbishment of the existing two storey Science/Art & Technology wing with some small modifications externally to the façade and roof.
Works are currently underway making access to the site for works to progress July 2016.
