Project Overviewx

Drainage works were carried out within the site to divert and carry out the abandonment of both public and private sewers. Works were carried out to provide both foul and surface water connections from within the new school building to the public sewer out falls in 3 locations up to a depth of 6 metres.
A value engineering exercise was carried out within the sports fields where perculation tests were carried out to prove that soak away manholes could be used which in turn reduced the affect on the public sewers.

Infrastructure ducting was installed to provide external lighting and cctv services.

Temporary and permanent substations were built and the relevant gas, water and electrical services were installed into the new building.

Remediation works and a cut and fill exercise was carried out on the area for the sports pitches which included the use of all the excavated materials from within the new building works.

Again a value engineering exercise was carried out with the use of lime / cement stabilization which was used to stabilize the fill material that was used to build up the ground profiles of the sports and habitat areas.

Concrete foundation bases, ground beams, lift pits and the ground floor slabs were all cast to the appropriate specification and tolerance with quality signed off sheets approved for each section of the works.

High quality feature paving works were completed to the external areas of the school along with the associated play areas, car parks and access roads. New access and service roads were constructed that tied into the existing carriageways and footpaths.

The above project was complete and handed over to Manchester City Council on time within budget and without any major health and safety issues.
