New School in Woking Surrey

Work has begun on building a new school in Woking Surrey, as Morgan SIndall are awarded the contract. Surrey County Council awarded the contract earlier this year through the Southern Construction framework.

The school – Freemantles School – is to be rebuilt and will include expanded facilities capable of accommodating up to 270 pupils with special educational needs and autism spectrum disorders.The two storey building will provide a separate secondary and further education building and help the school with their expansion to 270 place for students aged 4 – 19 years old. The new building will link to the old school and replace three of the temporary classrooms currently being used. A fenced multi-use games arena together with two small enclosed playing fields are included in the plans.

Morgan Sindall Construction will be working with sub-contractor Streif who will use composite timber casettes on part of the project.

Included in the project also are Campbell Reith Consulting Engineers, Bond Bryan Architects, building services engineer Hawden and cost consultant Pellings. Nick Stoyles is Morgan Sindalls project manager and Harry Weymouth is site manager.
