Heckmondwike Grammar School

Title: Heckmondwike Grammar School

Client: Heckmondwike Grammar School

Value: £2.7m

QSP were appointed to create a new two-storey teaching block, science lab and reception area as extensions to the existing grammar school, as well as additional car parking and other associated works.

Four months into the building process, the client requested the addition of a second storey, while requiring that the original completion deadlines for the ground and first floors were still met.

In fact, the ground floor was handed over six weeks ahead of schedule and the first floor was handed over on schedule.

In January 2011 the new building was given a royal seal of approval by The Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex when he officially opened the Crellin building.

 

'We were delighted with QSP Construction Group during the construction of our new teaching/science block and reception area. They managed to achieve phased handover dates for all 3 floors, despite the late inclusion of an additional floor. They did this by a combination of astute site management and by being extremely attentive to our changing needs as a client. Their Site Manager and Construction Manager were an absolute credit to the company and there seemed to be a significant partnering philosophy to work alongside our design team, which has helped to create a superb quality building for the school.'
