calfordseaden was appointed pre-contract to provide Project Management, Cost Consultant and Flood Risk Assessment services for the extension of a sports hall at a co-educational preparatory school in Kent. We were then appointed as Employer’s Agent for the tendering and contract phases.

Prior to our appointment on this project, we had been working with Marlborough House School on a number of projects to improve the facilities.

The main focus of this element was the extension of the existing sports hall to create new changing rooms over two levels to centralise the PE department, the existing sports hall had minimal changing facilities and additional areas being located within the main school building away from the sports areas. These new areas also released the existing spaces for conversion to teaching spaces.

Planning permission for the new changing rooms was obtained early in 2018. We then moved forward with a single stage D&B tender process during the early summer with a view to appoint the successful contractor in the late Summer. The contract was awarded in September 2018 then following clearance of the pre commencement planning conditions a start on site achieved in January 2019.

Works progressed and the building was completed ready for the return of the school in September 2019.
