Stanground College, Peterborough
The works involved removal of numerous buildings, of varying construction between one and four storey, including a swimming pool block.
The project was to be completed during the school Summer holiday period, which was slightly extended by the school closing two weeks earlier than would normally be the case.
The works were challenging given the sheer volumes of material arising from the demolition. At the peak five demolition rigs were operating on site, producing over 20,000t of hardcore for the local recycling market.
Traffic and pedestrian management plans were established very early in the planning stage, given the project’s close proximity to large concentrations of residential property.
Works were completed on time, on budget and to the highest possible health, safety and environmental standards possible.
Kier rewarded the smooth running of the project with numerous similar projects nationwide.
