Construction of a new teaching block at Longcroft School on the outskirts of Beverley has provided modern classrooms and facilities for staff and students.
Part of the Priority School Building Programme 2 (PSBP2) and funded by the Department for Education, the project has united the school, which previously extended across two separate sites. The new block provides three floors of teaching space, including science labs and preparation rooms, a student reception, a learning resource centre and teacher workrooms.
Our dedicated site team were able to provide considerable programme savings and cost-savings during the project, for example, by using structural insulated panels (SIPS) rather than traditional construction.
The team ensured the school were well informed throughout construction, providing project updates and regularly engaging with students about the project.
We are pleased to have handed over our first school through the DFE framework, and this is a significant milestone for the company. I am confident that this new facility will help the pupils to achieve their potential.

I am delighted that this new building has been completed, bringing the school together onto one site. The work has improved the environment for both students and staff and increased the energy efficiency of the school.
