Barr’s Hill School – Coventry
Mellor Bromley are delighted to have secured the Mechanical Services package to expand and remodel existing buildings, and also create a new teaching block for year seven pupils at Barr’s Hill School, Coventry. The school currently offers 655 places for children aged 11-16, plus sixth form students, and has an expansion plan to ensure it provides a total of 900 places in five years’ time.
The contract has been let to us by Main Contractor, G F Tomlinson Building, on a design and build basis with a mechanical services value of approximately £600k. The Scheme comprises the construction of a new two-storey, seven classroom teaching block, known as ‘The Bridge’ for January 2022. This will be a dedicated space for year seven pupils, designed to help 11 and 12 year olds benefit from a smooth transition into secondary education. Works will also see the school’s science department extended and refurbished, new classroom spaces created within existing blocks, improved facilities added to the sports changing / multi-gym and external play spaces and additional dining space to accommodate the school’s expansion over the coming years, with the refurbishment works expected for completion in September 2021.
The new project consists of the removal of redundant systems and the provision of new gas, heating, cooling, hot and cold water services, mechanical and natural ventilation systems, BMS controls, sanitaryware and above ground drainage systems.
