BJF Group’s Construction Division have secured a project to demolish and replace a prefabricated classroom with a new permanent brick/block extension at a Primary School in Deal, Kent. The build is on behalf of leading support service provider Amey for Kent County Council (KCC).

Set within the quaint village of Worth, Worth Primary School is a traditional school at the heart of the local community with capacity for around 65 students. Due to the works taking place within the school grounds we will be taking the opportunity to run class assemblies to educate the students on safety around building sites as well as to inspire them to consider joining the next generation of construction professionals.

The 100 m2 extension will provide a permanent 5th classroom designed to be in keeping with the existing school building. In order to be consistent with the current building we will be using matching bricks as well as stone window surrounds.

Being directly next to the village pond, special care will be taken to eliminate dust and debris from site activities, and we are in regular communication with the surrounding residents and local businesses to ensure that we minimise any disruption.

The 16-week project, due to commence in Autumn 2020 will greatly enhance the school and provide a futureproof space for years to come.

Mrs Chance, Head of School at Worth Primary School said:

“The addition of a permanent building to Worth Primary School will significantly enhance and support the school in delivering high quality learning alongside ensuring the children are safe and secure in their learning environment. We are very much looking forward to this addition, and cannot wait for the children to see and be involved in the development of the build.”
