New design & technology block for Wiltshire secondary school

St Joseph’s Catholic School in Laverstock is committed to the formation of character and the acquisition of a value system that will enable young people to live life to the full. Its a vibrant and dynamic school with high expectations and great ambitions, and this is reflected in the new design and technology block that has recently been completed. 

Increasing pupil numbers

The modern, clean and energy efficient new block will provide the school with much needed additional facilities to cope with increasing pupil numbers.

The new state of the art Design and Technology block was finished one month ahead of programme and both pupils and teachers are delighted with their new facility. The building contains two IT classrooms, along with specially designed food and design technology spaces. 

Project management

Hookway undertook the Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Principal Designer roles on the project, which was designed by Bristol based Architects, O’Leary Goss.

Testimonial

“Hookway worked in close partnership with us and carefully managed a range of trades and contractors. Greg Smith, Hookway’s Surveyor, met with my team regularly and always acted upon any feedback shared; he cared passionately about the quality of the work and made sure that it was completed to an excellent standard.’”

“We had to prepare and construct additional facilities, within two terms, to accommodate a child with severe and profound needs. The initial task seemed totally overwhelming, however Hookway took on the role of project managing the nearly £100,000 extension and enabled school life to continue with very few changes. ”

“The whole project was entirely ‘self-sufficient’ as far as the school leaders were concerned, apart from pre-agreed meetings/decisions along the way, and the building was completed to a very high spec in a safe and efficient way. We would have no hesitation in recommending Hookway to other schools.”
