Rudheath Community Primary School
Architect: Design Group Chester
Project Value: £2m
Period: December 2012 > September 2013
Now that the building work is complete, I am writing to say how delighted all members of the school community are with their new accommodation. We all feel really proud of our spacious bright hall, our shiny clean kitchen, our bespoke offices and our welcoming entrance hall. The children of Rudheath now have the school building that they deserve, and one that will not only enhance their learning, but will increase their enjoyment of coming to school. All work scheduled was completed to agreed deadlines and for such a project to have been completed within 8 months is truly impressive
The high levels of commitment to our school from all personnel was evident throughout the build, and the activities involving the children enabled the teaching staff to exploit the opportunities provided by the project. The art competition organised by members of your staff resulted in some stunning art work and the large display at the entrance to the school was commented upon favourably by many visitors. The visits from Kieran and the talks about building site safety certainly increased the children’s understanding of the dangers present on building sites. Our youngest children are clearly thrilled with the installation of the wooden castle in their outdoor play area and as a result of the chess club, it is now common to see the children playing chess during their lunchtimes. The final gift of 4 bicycles will be awarded as prizes for good attendance over the coming years.
Your personnel became part of our school and now that they have left us to begin work on their next project, we miss them. Wayne Blair’s commitment to our school, his determination to fit in with the demands of the school day and his consistently high standards are to be commended. Regular communication between the school and Wayne, also contributed hugely to the smooth running of the project. As a token of our thanks we presented Wayne and Alan with mementoes of their time at Rudheath. The children compiled a book of drawings, letters etc. expressing their feelings about their new school, and to show their appreciation the staff presented Wayne and Alan with hampers of speciality foods from Cheshire.
Based on our recent experience, I would not hesitate to recommend Wayne and the team to any other school who may be looking for a company to undertake major building works on their site.
