AHR BUILDING CONSULTANCY HAS WORKED WITH ST WILFRID’S WHICH IS NOW AN ACADEMY SINCE 1998. DURING THIS PERIOD WE HAVE HELPED TO SECURE £12 MILLION TO INVEST IN MAINTAINING, DEVELOPING AND EXTENDING THE SCHOOL BUILDINGS AND ENVIRONMENT.
St Wilfrid's is a typical example of how we have worked in partnership with a school to secure funding and develop the school buildings over a period of time. Funding was secured with evidence and support from the school development plan. This identified a programme of works to meet the changing curriculum needs, fabric condition and future aspirations of the school.
The 1960s buildings have been substantially re-modelled and refurbished transforming the education environment. Externally, the fabric deficiencies have been addressed with new external cladding systems, upgraded windows and thermally efficient roof coverings.
To accommodate increasing demand for school places and an increasing school population, a new extension was constructed providing a mix of specialist teaching accommodation and general classrooms.
