Preston Park School is a large, three-to-four form entry community school - providing education to some 815 pupils.
The project comprised a new building including three classrooms, an ICT centre and a library. Additionally, work was carried out on the existing school including the refurbishment of a multipurpose hall, toilets and offices.
Mecserve was responsible for the design of the building services for both the new and refurbishment work. As part of the design the main school boiler plant was replaced, with repairs, modifications and improvements carried out on the existing heating pipe-work systems, drainage, fire alarms and electrical services within the existing school.
Importantly, all work was carried out during term time but did not impact any of the time-tabled schooling.
