Construction works at Turves Green Girls School, Birmingham, is making headway and remains on target for full completion of all phases in the Summer of 2021. Providing project management, quantity surveying, clerk of works and CDM services to the contract, Acivico are delighted with the continued development onsite, despite operating in the current challenging economic climate.
Appointed via the Acivico managed Constructing West Midlands framework, our contractor, Balfour Beatty, is on programme handover the school in Autumn 2021, ensuring a seamless delivery and readiness to welcome both staff and students into the new term, with their new facilities.
Once complete, the £21m project will accommodate 750 pupils, from age 11 to 16. The school is at the heart of the community, adjacent to both Turves Green Primary School and Turves Green Secondary Boys School. The new building will be constructed in a phased approach, allowing educational continuity and full operation of the facilities at handover stage. Offering a spatial coherence of teaching and support accommodation, the project includes modern science laboratories, technology rooms, specialist teaching areas and a purpose built SEND support provision.
The design of the new facilities has been maximised to utilise all areas of the site, with the building being complimented with extensive external landscaping and seating areas for the student’s social space, a 630m2 sports hall, refurbished and extended MUGA and sports pitches.
