Esh Construction has completed the refurbishment of a pupil referral unit at Springfield School in Wakefield which will provide more space and better facilities for 11-18-year-olds

The £1.2m refurbishment project, which was secured by the YORbuild framework, will help Springfield School provide enhanced teaching space and workshop facilities for students that have challenging experiences in mainstream education.

Wakefield Metropolitan District council commissioned the Springfield School scheme to help students gain qualifications and practical experience, best preparing them for adulthood.

 Stuart Leslie, divisional director of Esh Build, said: “Projects like this are crucial to providing the correct facilities for young people. Our client identified a need for a larger space and modernised facilities to provide a fit for purpose learning environment.

“Due to the efforts of our delivery team the scheme was delivered 3-weeks ahead of schedule.”

Esh’s social value team worked with the adjoining school and local residents to deliver STEM sessions and organise work experience placements for students at Springfield School while the works were ongoing.

This is the latest education scheme completed by Esh Construction in the region. Others include a £1.1m two-storey classroom extension and remodelling of a hard play area for Horbury St Peter’s School in Wakefield, and a £1m classroom refurbishment for St Wilfrid’s School in Pontefract.
