Latest on Old Buckenham's new school

Site progress
Work on the Chapel Green School site has been progressing at a rapid pace and the commencement of work by several new contractors has seen the structure start to develop into a building.
Following erection of the steel frame, the precast concrete floor and roof planks have been laid allowing the structural framing system to be installed, forming the envelope of the building. As well as this, the curtain walling, windows and doors have been installed at the far end of the building. External brickwork is now also being done allowing people to see what the end product will look like visually.
Roofing works have commenced and, with a progressively watertight building, it is possible to start to form the internal walls and to begin the mechanical and electrical fit out.
Along with everything happening to the building, work is going on landscaping the surplus soil and opening areas to allow the following trades to make a start including installation of the football pitch and MUGA pitch.
Morgan Sindall are striving to continue with their community engagement and have welcomed students of surrounding schools to visit and to carry out some bricklaying activities on site. Further activities are in the pipeline for supporting and getting involved with local village activities.
Throughout the build process the aim is to keep villagers updated on all activities on site while carrying out the best possible job with minimal disruption to the surrounding areas. The next activities include installing the remaining roof and curtain walling, the internal fit out, external landscaping and the·hydrotherapy pool.
