The construction and property development company Kier has been contracted, yet again, to deliver a primary school project in Norfolk, after being successfully appointed through the Norfolk County Council Framework to extend the Hethersett Primary School.
The Hethersett Primary School extension scheme will entail the construction of an eight classroom teaching block complete with a new student library, a studio hall, and group rooms with outdoor facilities including a hard and soft play area in addition to a new car park.
The project has cost the school a total sum of £3.4M and will increase the capacity of the school from 240 to 420 students, with completion scheduled to be achieved by autumn 2020 after works commenced only just recently.
The delivery of the new teaching block will also involve external drainage and external service upgrades to provide slight upgrades to the school as a whole.
The Managing Director at Kier Regional Building Eastern, Mark Dady stated, “We are very happy to have been selected to deliver the extension at Hethersett Primary School to provide much-needed improvements and space for additional pupils. We have a strong knowledge of the region through various works we have delivered in the area and we look forward to working closely with Norwich County Council.”
The Head Teacher at Hethersett Primary School, Matthew Parslow-Williams added, “This is an exciting time in the school’s history, and we are delighted to be working with Kier on our primary transition journey. Our well-resourced school with a wide range of facilities is going to be enriched with a brand new eight classroom block – fantastic for the children of Hethersett.”
Kier has provided several similar projects to the county of Norfolk recently including the White House Farm Primary School project in Sprowston, entailing the construction of a two-storey teaching block, and the St Clements Hill Primary Academy scheme.
