Enfield School for Deaf Children in Bristol is to have a two-storey extension. The work is to be carried out by Skanska, who have been awarded a £7.5m contract.
Some demolition work will be carried out before the refurbishment of an existing building, with a playground also being added.
Work on this project was started in February this year and completion is planned for early next year. The expansion is part of a development programme to improve special educational needs and disability facilities (SEND) across the city.
Charlie Norris, Operations Director said: “Work is to include specialist acoustic facilities, sensory, nature and life skills rooms together with other teaching spaces. This is designed to improve the current facilities and give children an up to date exciting area in which to learn. Improvement is also planned for the existing neighbouring primary school in order that children with special needs are able to learn together in mainstream school”.
