Project: Ireland Wood Primary School
Site Programme: 6 Weeks
As part of the education Leeds Basic Needs Framework for Leeds City Council, Premier Modular Limited were contracted to supply a new classroom block at Ireland Wood Primary School.The 667m2 2-storey building at Ireland Wood Primary School has a split-level construction, designed so that the first floor of the new modular building linked into the ground floor of the existing school building.
The internal construction contains six classrooms; sensory room, toilet facilities and a two-wheelchair passenger lift to cope with the different floor levels. Additional car parking and play areas were provided for the increased pupil and staff numbers. A large amount of soil was removed to accommodate the new building and then relocated to the school’s playing fields.
The external finish of the building was a mix of glazed screening, brick slip and insulated composite panels.
“Right from the start Waco impressed us with their efficient, professional manner whilst contracted to extensively extend our school. Their approach not only inspired confidence, but also generated the results we were hoping for. We needed an effective solution to the growing demand for pupil places in our area and Waco took away much of the stress and workload around planning an extension that worked for school.”
