Bramley Primary School expansion: Building work fast-tracked

Council chiefs are fast-tracking a £3.25 million extension of Bramley Primary School in a bid to meet increasing demand for places.

Bramley Primary is due to expand from 280 places to 420 with effect from September 2017.

Work has already started on site and a council report has said the authority will spend £577,000 to allow work to continue on the new car park, building a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA), procurement of materials for the new extension and demolition works.

The work will keep the redevelopment uninterrupted until the main construction contract between the council and a building company is signed.

The report adds:

“Due to the constricted programme and necessity to deliver the additional accommodation for commencement of the new academic year in September 2017 it is essential to extend the ‘Early Works’ period to cover the May 2017 activity schedule in order to ensure the critical path for project delivery is met.

“By extending ‘Early Works’ period as detailed this will allow work to continue uninterrupted onsite, thus removing the cost risk associated with de-mobilising and re-mobilising once the full construction contract has been entered into.”

The report can be read in full here.
