Professional Services – Refurbishment & Safeguarding Works, Ashton Community Science College

Single storey extension and internal remodelling to a heritage primary school
Ashton Community Science College


Our responsibilities included the scoping of works and developing the project brief, project design, and engagement with specialist sub-contractors for the refurbishment.

We undertook the principal designer role including Health and Safety support, preparing tender documents and reports, contract management including advice, preparation and administration. A high degree of interface with the schools key representatives was a significant factor in the projects’ success. The project was completed before the school re-opened in September and within budget.

Our Services

We can manage all areas of project work including:-

  • Refurbishments and Extensions
  • Energy Efficiency Reviews
  • Heating Upgrades and Repairs
  • Roof Repairs

Our Approach

One of the challenges we faced when designing the refurbishment was how the door access controls would operate efficiently.

The system needed to ensure the safeguarding requirements were addressed whilst maintaining a degree of free movement for pupils during applicable times throughout the school day.

Working with the installer we designed a solution that meant the automatic doors were not only able to deliver this function, but also helped to improve the energy efficiency by limiting the amount of time the doors were open for, something the previous manual doors did not provide.

Client Feedback

“Excellent service from the outset, their Project Surveyor scoped the works in detail in preparation at the tender specification. Consultation was thorough and final specification reflected the vision for the works. The tender process was efficient; involved a choice of three contractors and the decision was made on the most economical price. The project was started on time and was well managed by project surveyor with lots of visits and contact via email and phone. The project ran slightly over however this was allowed for during the planning stage. I would highly recommend the services of Eric Wright FM.”
