Norfolk County Council has appointed Kier to deliver the £3.4m extension of Hethersett Primary School through the Norfolk County Council Framework
The extension of Hethersett Primary School will involve constructing a standalone eight classroom, single-storey teaching block, which includes a new Library space, Studio Hall and Group Rooms, as well as a minor refurbishment of some areas within the existing school.
It will also incorporate external works including car parks, external drainage and external service upgrades.
The works will transform the capacity of the School from 240 to 420 places, allowing the Junior School to become an all through Primary school.
Mark Dady, managing director at Kier Regional Building Eastern, said: “We’re very happy to have been selected to deliver the extension at Hethersett Primary School to provide much-needed improvements and space for additional pupils.
“We have a strong knowledge of the region through various works we have delivered in the area and we look forward to working closely with Norwich County Council.”
Matthew Parslow-Williams, head teacher at Hethersett Primary School, added: “This is an exciting time in the school’s history, and we are delighted to be working with Kier on our primary transition journey.
“Our well-resourced school with a wide range of facilities is going to be enriched with a brand new eight classroom block – fantastic for the children of Hethersett.”
Building works will begin on the extension of the school in late 2019 and completion is expected in autumn 2020.
Hethersett Primary School is the latest appointment for Kier on the previous iteration of the Norfolk County Council framework. Kier previously completed works on the brand-new White House Farm primary school in Sprowston in September, creating an additional 420 primary school places in the area.
