Playground resurfacing, car park redesign & drainage remedial work

Hempshill Hall Primary School

Over numerous years Field and Civil Engineering Ltd have supported Hempshill Hall Primary School on many refurbishment projects, which included the construction of new outdoor facilities as well as drainage remedial works.

Requirements for the engineering project

Over the years FACE formed a trusting relationship with Hempshill Hall Primary School and as a result worked on a series of projects that covered a variety of different areas on site.

These different projects included a new car park and playground resurfacing area with improved markings. Other facilities for FACE to construct were the outdoor fencing and decking areas, an outdoor space for the nursery and a new water feature. FACE were also approached to carry out drainage remedial works, followed by the supply of both new toilets and replacement windows.

The refurbishments in their entirety would allow the client to achieve their key objectives in providing a sustainable, practical and aesthetic re-design of the school property. The work carried out would not only maximise the longevity of the building and improve its’ facilities, but also enhance the school experience for both children and teachers alike.

Onsite challenges within the education sector

Working in a school environment poses several challenges, particularly in regards to the safety of children, staff, and colleagues throughout the building work. Therefore FACE were focused on working in a proficient and tidy manner, whilst carrying out all work in a way that ensured minimal interference to day-to- day operations. Regardless of the sheer scale of the project, FACE carefully organised and structured their workload in a way that involved little disruption to school life for staff, parents, governors and children.

Results of the school refurbishment

FACE’s highly experienced and qualified engineers were focused on ensuring they provided the best possible solution for Hempshill Hall Primary School. From the car park redesign through to the drainage remedial works, FACE strove to deliver the best possible performance in all areas. As with all projects, careful consideration was given to ensure the highest of safety requirements were met and where applicable, that the desired aesthetic was achieved.

Helen Ridge, then Head Teacher of Hempshill Hall Primary School, praised their high level of workmanship:

“As a head of a large primary school in Nottingham, I have worked with FACE on numerous projects and found them to be a reliable, innovative and competitive company in terms of best value for money and resources. Above all, they provide a personalised service and are flexible and always willing to listen and fully meet our school needs. I can wholeheartedly recommend this company to your organisation and wish you well in future projects”.

From the initial discussion through to engineering and delivery, FACE thoroughly enjoyed being part of this refurbishment and are pleased with the overall outcome.
