Whitmore Park Primary School opens new building, UK

Whitmore Park Primary School has opened a new primary education facility on its existing site in Coventry, UK. The project is the first to be completed under the government’s £2.4 billion Priority Schools Building Programme. Mott MacDonald is providing technical advisory and cost consultancy services to the Education Funding Agency (EFA) which is implementing the programme.

The new 3,300 sq m primary school and nursery is part of the first batch of priority schools in the Midlands. This includes the rebuild of four primary schools, one secondary school and a broad spectrum special school, delivering a total of 3,687 pupil places.

Mott MacDonald undertook a feasibility study to determine cost and developed technical procurement documentation. The team also provided technical review of the contractor’s design proposals and supported the EFA the during procurement, commissioning and construction phases. The consultancy continues to deliver technical advisory services to another 88 schools across the programme.

David Sheard, Mott MacDonald’s technical director, said: “The new building replaces the existing school which was proving costly to maintain and operate. Mott MacDonald has an excellent knowledge of the design requirements for educational buildings, which enabled us to work successfully with the EFA, local authority and school. The new facility will provide a much improved learning and working environment for students and staff.”
