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.
