Stoke Damerel Primary School, Plymouth

A basic needs project comprising the construction of four extensions to the existing school – providing new classroom spaces and additional WC facilities – and internal refurbishment to a number of rooms.  External works included the creation of new playground areas.

The project was phased to ensure minimum effect on the smooth running of the school.  Phase 1) modify and refurbish existing teaching and staff room spaces Phase 2) construction of the extensions.

The project was completed to budget, on time and to the satisfaction of the client.  The Performance Assessment Questionnaire noted that: “Everyone involved in the project from Ryearch deserves praise but particularly Grant Dent, the Site Manager who has ensured that the school remain happy throughout the construction and has always been very helpful in meeting their requests outside of what is expected as part of the contract.”
