We recently handed over our project at Campion School in Leamington Spa with zero defects and a delighted client! – Congratulations to all involved and thank you for your hard work!
This scheme was procured via the Pagabo medium works framework and saw Ashe once again work alongside Warwickshire County Council to deliver this exciting new facility. Ashe have worked with Warwickshire County Council on more than 25 different projects, and the Campion School scheme was a truly collaborative approach from the outset with Ashe, Warwickshire County Council, and Campion School engaging in regular contact to provide project updates and deliver the works with minimal disruption to the school’s ongoing activities and ensure a happy client throughout.
The project was completed in 3 main phases; phase 1 was refurbishment works within the existing school, which involved the conversion of 2 classrooms to form a new kitchen and dining space. Phase 2 was the main works to construct the new 2 storey steel framed stand-alone science and mathematics block with 16 classrooms. The final phase was the construction of a new 30 space car park and additional external landscaping works.
A handover ceremony was held with the school staff to celebrate this outstanding new building with it’s unique iridescent cladding and purpose built science labs. The new build’s footprint was on one of the school’s playgrounds and Ashe were required to remove some basketball hoops in order to facilitate the new science and maths building. As a gesture of good will and to celebrate the partnered approach of Ashe and Campion throughout this project Ashe donated 4 new basketball hoops to the school to ensure the school’s pupils (and some staff) could still enjoy some basketball during their breaks!
When asked about working with the Ashe team Campion School’s Business Manager, Brian Langley, said;
“It’s been quite inspirational to a lot of our own staff actually, in terms of the highest of standards that [Ashe] have adhered to and tried to achieve throughout the whole project, and that’s testament to the end product which is a fantastic facility.”
We also asked Brian whether he would recommend Ashe and work with us again and he commented;
“Absolutely, one hundred percent! There’s no question about that at all, and in fact we hope to in the very near future. The whole approach has been very professional, very well organised, and the end result absolutely one hundred percent speaks for itself!”
We’re extremely proud of what our partnered approach has achieved with Campion School and agree that the end product shows what can be accomplished with a team who truly care about the project they’re building and the client they’re building for.
