In Education, Leeds, Permission secured

On behalf of modular building specialists, Elliott Group, DPP has secured permission for eight replacement primary schools across the UK in the last 10 months.

As part of the Education & Skills Funding Agency’s Priority Schools Building Programme, the schools (listed below) will be either extended or demolished and replaced with modular rooms or buildings, manufactured off-site allowing each to remain open to their communities whilst works are carried out.

Hilderthorpe Primary School – Bridlington

Croftlands Junior School – Ulverston

Rivers Academy – Walsall

Cavendish Close Junior school – Derby

Seascale Primary School – Seascale

Jericho Primary School – Whitehaven

Arundel Court Primary – Portsmouth

Beacon View Primary – Portsmouth

Speaking about the schools, DPP’s Head of Education Michelle Davies said;

We are very pleased to be working with Elliott Group to help them deliver schools in such an innovative way. The modular off-site construction model means shorter construction times, greater efficiency and are much more sustainable than a traditional build.
