Another Success Story for Award Winning Construction Firm Andrew Scott Ltd as Recently Completed School Project Gets Set to Officially Open Its Doors
After 60 weeks of hard work, new school Carreg Hirfaen will officially open its doors this July. Andrew Scott Ltd took on the £4.7million contract to construct a brand new education facility on the land opposite the existing school site in Lampeter, Carmarthenshire.
The project was completed on 19th February 2016 and opened to pupils three days later on 22nd February. The new school incorporates a number of important design features, and has been developed to accommodate 150 pupils in its core facility, providing provisions for 210 students and a further 30 nursery pupils in total thanks to associated external works.
“We are proud to have been the main contractor on such a prestigious project. The new facility has been completed to the highest standards expected and will provide a first class teaching environment for the local community,” said Steve Rees, Contracts Manager at Andrew Scott Ltd.
The building was constructed using a steel frame design, whilst its external façade consists of facebrick, timber cladding, rendering and stonework. The new Carreg Hirfaen School also has composite roof panels clad with natural slate, aluminium windows, metal stud internal partitions clad with plasterboard and skim, piled foundations, and a traditional heating installation, including radiators and underfloor heating within the hall.
News of this project success story comes just weeks after Andrew Scott won three accolades at the RICS Wales Awards 2016, including the coveted title of ‘Project of the Year’.
“Both the client and school staff are extremely pleased with the works undertaken on the contract. We have even been asked to sponsor the official opening ceremony event which we have gratefully accepted,” concluded Steve.
