Project Description

Through our involvement with the LHC Framework, Shaylor Group was appointed to support the expansion of Newstead Academy. The project involved the design and construction of a single storey extension to the existing school. Internally, we provided a new commercial kitchen, hall, eight classrooms, offices and associated ancillary space. Externally, works comprised a new courtyard, playground and disabled access ramp. Stakeholder management was fundamental throughout the works due to the live school environment and close proximity to local residents. Aligned with the school’s objectives, we had a sustainable focus throughout delivery, minimising the project’s environmental impact and the school’s carbon footprint.


"Shaylor Group’s Site Manager was an invaluable part of the team in terms of communication and realising our vision. His attention to detail and commitment to the job was fantastic and we feel extremely fortunate to have had such a font of knowledge leading the build.”
