St Wilfrid's School, North Featherstone

Title: St Wilfrid's School, North Featherstone

Client: Catholic Diocese of Leeds

Value: £6m

This large and wide-ranging £6m project involved the construction of a new teaching block, sports hall and tennis courts, coupled with extensive external works which included access roads, car parking and a bus turnaround area.

To ensure smooth pupil movement around the school during the 90 week construction period, QSP were required to meet a multitude of deadlines, which we were able to achieve thanks in part to extensive client liaison, on a weekly and often daily basis.

QSP site manager Peter Mather headed up our most extensive site management team to date. His exacting standards ensured a superb quality build on a very tight programme. The school remained open throughout.


'QSP were appointed to carry out our new sports hall, teaching block and tennis court as well as a difficult road access point for buses and cars. Potentially, a logistical nightmare for the school, however QSP were able to show a great understanding of our needs as a client. Peter Mather, Site Manager was professional, courteous and very approachable and we developed a strong working relationship which resulted in minimum disruption to the school. We remained fully operational throughout. The whole project has been a huge success and bears testimony to the efforts of all concerned at QSP. Their understanding of our wishes and intentions of normal school life continuing with minimum disruption cannot be over stressed!'
