West Park School, Spondon, Derby

We are very excited to be part of Derby based West Park Schools construction of a New Classroom Block (12 New Classrooms). They are a wonderful, officially outstanding (Ofsted report rating 2013) school who pride themselves on being:

‘A caring school where we put pupils and their achievement first’

Helping them expand their school, to ensure more local children can benefit from their proven outstanding school, is a project we are immensely proud to be part of. In fact it’s a project close to our hearts as their current head teacher Mr Walker was our very own Commercial Director Alex Robinsons’s teacher back in the day, and some of our employees went to this great school!

Local business all working together

The Main Contractor for this project is another local Derbyshire based company, Derwent Valley Construction. We jumped at the chance to work closely with them and provide the steelwork for the new classroom block, as we were eager to be part of the expansion of such an important educational establishment within our city.

We erected the steelwork, positioned metal decking, installed a curved roof and pre-cast stairs all within six days. All very quick and efficient! Our work was very intricate, so we called upon our trusted friends at Tomrods to process the steel and notch the beams.

The new classroom block is due to be finished at the end of Summer 2017.
