WCN Editorial Team 24 Aug 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based construction firm Graham is working on a major construction project to deliver a new school building to the Pavilion Study Centre in Whetstone, Barnet, the UK.

The centre offers various educational programmes and services to up to 73 people who are unable to attend mainstream schools.

The new school will add more space and modern facilities that include an IT suite, multi-use games area, space for music and drama, sports hall and science, art and technology workshops.

The scope of work on the construction project also includes the development of a new sports pavilion as well as improvements to the surrounding Dame Alice Owen Playing Fields.

Construction work on the project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2022.

Graham development director Rob Joyce said: “The main school building and sports pavilion will transform the educational experience of the young people.

“On behalf of Graham, we are proud to be delivering a facility that is fit for the 21st century educational requirements of The Pavilion’s staff and pupils.

“Thanks to close collaboration with the school’s leadership, the local Whetstone community, London Borough of Barnet and Capita, we are delighted to have reached this significant milestone in the construction programme.”

In July 2021, the construction company was awarded a £92m contract by Highways England to upgrade Junction 5 of the M2 motorway in Kent, the UK.

The company was responsible for major improvements to the slip roads and the junction approaches around the M2 junction near Sittingbourne in Kent.
