Harrogate Grammar School
  • Steelworks package value: £100k
  • Duration: 3 months
THE BRIEF

Hull based Sewell Construction were awarded the contract to build a new classroom block at Harrogate Grammar School to enable the school’s expansion plans, by creating three additional classrooms, a large atrium to be used during winter months, and a new student entrance to address congestion during lesson transition times. Harrogate Steel was awarded the structural steel package which included full connection design, detailing, fabrication, painting and installation of the 45-tonne steel frame.

THE WORKS

The Harrogate Steel team’s early involvement in this project was key to its success. The architectural led design and site layout were both complex and challenging and involved reusing space within a 1930’s building footprint. As a fast-growing business working more and more with larger contractors Harrogate Steel is still very committed to supporting local infrastructure projects and was proud to be involved in ensuring this high performing Harrogate based school can continue to provide inspirational learning environments for its pupils.

THE HIGHLIGHTS

We worked alongside Harrogate Steel on this new classroom block at Harrogate Grammar School, to enable the school’s exciting expansion plans. The steel structure was not a standard frame, as it involved a complex architectural led design plus the logistics of the site were challenging to say the least. Input at the front end of the project, from the Harrogate Steel team was critical. They undertook the connection design, detailing, fabrication and installation of the 45-tonne steel frame and their expertise and professionalism helped ensure the smooth running of this complicated aspect of the build. A great project partner from start to finish.” Richard Webster, Sewell Construction
