This project has delivered a new-build three stream primary school with community facilities including flexible accommodation for up to 651 primary pupils and 160 nursery children provided over 2-storeys, an 11-a-side grass pitch, a 7-a-side pitch and replacement children’s play park. The project is on track to achieve a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating.

The site required a net import of material to suit levels determined by fixed boundary constraints and the varying existing levels on the site. Cundall worked closely with the contractor to source suitable recycled fill material from another of their sites, significantly reducing the embodied energy and cost compared with the alternative import of quarried material.

A Transport Assessment was undertaken which considered access locations and routes to and from the new site for all modes of transport - focussing on Safer Routes to Schools. In addition the TA included junction capacity assessment, road accident investigation, trip generation and proposed pedestrian crossings.
