Refurbishment Works to a Live Secondary School, Including Roofing, Glazing, Asbestos Removal, Canopies and More.


  • “What could have been a logistical nightmare operating in a live school site with at times over 30 operatives on site at any one time ... was handled professionally and diligently with a clear programme of works being followed
    Tim Hammersley, Surrey County Council

  • “Changes to the programme ... during the exam period were accommodated by the site management team and contract manager so that the works did not interfere with the running of the school but also ensuring that the works were still completed on time. Additional work ... were accommodated into the programme in a timely manner to limit any potential impact on time ... ensuring that the works were completed to budget.
    Tim Hammersley, Surrey County Council

A large scale refurbishment project at Kings International College in Camberley, running for 10 months from August 2018 through to June 2019.

Key Challenges

Safety and minimal disruption within a live educational setting during substantial refurbishment works with over 30 operatives on site at any one time.

  • Site Segregation: The works were carefully segregated to ensure operatives and non-construction personnel such as students never mixed. This was achieved through physical segregation (barriers, decanting of works areas and handover control) and temporal segregation (works outside of school opening times).

  • Safety Inspections: Regular safety inspections were carried out to ensure the project did not impact on safety in any way. Any issues were always brought immediately to the attention of the site manager and rectified promptly, then documented and shared with other teams to ensure a lessons-learned approach.

  • Careful housekeeping: We carefully ensured all works areas were clear of any sharps and tools prior to handover.

Completion on-time and on-budget.

  • Regular cost reports kept the client apprised of the financial position of the project, and extras were clearly costed and documented to ensure no overruns.
