Bramshall Meadows Primary School on Ivinson Way in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire, comprised the delivery of a single storey school in Staffordshire for G F Tomlinson and has been project managed by Entrust.
The £4.3 million scheme was delivered through the Staffordshire County Council’s Capital Framework.
The school will offer 150 school places for pupils aged four to nine years old, as well as nursery places. It was developed as part of a wider plan to expand first school provision in Uttoxeter. A response to an increased demand for places generated from new housing in the local area.
The site comprised a challenging sloping area with the school cut in to the site. Detailed external levels design and 3D modelling was undertaken to optimise external levels. The 3D modelling allowed detailed site sections to be extracted from the model and used to engage with neighbouring stakeholders and help get the scheme through the planning process.
The steel frame was optimised with the introduction of additional discrete columns hidden within the proposed corridor line which provided an overall reduction in the cost of the steel frame and foundations through a more efficient frame design. The additional columns also enabled reductions in the depth of the steel roof structure which provided a larger ceiling void for M&E services.
All structural modelling was undertaken to BIM level 2!
All structural modelling was undertaken to BIM level 2! This allows detailed co-ordination and clash checks with the design team to ensure smooth design and delivery of the scheme.
Jackson Purdue Lever also provided S184 services to enable various new road and footpath connections to the surrounding estate.
We are delighted to been a part of the design team to deliver this new, high quality school building. It will inspire pupils to achieve their academic potential and provide a solid building block for their journey through education.
During the works one of our Engineers took some great drone images of the site that we want to share…
