On the back of the successful completion of Phase 1 and Phase 2 of work at Manchester Health Academy in Wythenshawe, B&E Boys can report that work is going to schedule on Phase 3a. The £600k project was successfully negotiated and work commenced in March 2018. The contract period runs for 30 weeks.
Phase 3a involves the installation of a structural steel mezzanine deck within a live educational facility, together with the creation of a new Food Technology area and Science facility.
It is a pleasure to be invited back to Manchester Health Academy after previously working on two major projects in recent years. Phase 1 consisted of the construction of a dining room extension and refurbishment of classrooms and Science labs, with a project value of £800,000. Phase 2 began in February 2017. The project required the delivery of car parking and six new classrooms. It also involved significant infrastructure work to facilitate additional car parking space and sports pitches for the future.
B&E Boys are proud to be working alongside some highly regarded professionals on the new Phase 3a project. The consultants working on Phase 3 are Bowker Sadler Architecture, who fulfil the role of Project Manager and Architect. Stockport-based S I Sealey & Associates are the M&E Consultants. The structural engineers are Scott Hughes Design, a company who have offices in Manchester, Leeds and North Wales. Finally, the quantity surveyor for the project is CCM Partnership Ltd.
This latest large-scale project comes as Manchester Health Academy continues on its journey of improvement. The school is highly regarded in the community and it aims to ensure that all students leave the academy with high aspirations.
B&E Boys have a proud record of working on major projects, such as Phase 3a at MHA, within the Education sector. As is usually the case, much of the work will be carried out with the school being fully open and operational. The safety of staff and pupils, and ensuring that the disruption caused is kept to a minimum, is of paramount importance.
We will continue to update on how the project progresses.
