The redevelopment part of Lytham St Annes High School is one of the first to be built as part of the Department for Education’s 10-year Schools Rebuilding Programme (SRP). Hoard-it has supplied 470LM of solid and mesh construction site steel hoarding with 5 vehicle gates and 2 pedestrian gates on this project. The design was tailored to Wates’ corporate colours with the inclusion of powder coated outer steels, mesh panels and gates.
Work is being undertaken in four stages and will create a new school building that will be two storeys high. During the building process there will be a continuity of provision for the school and the community, without anyone needing to use temporary structures as classrooms for teaching. The new school building and the new sports hall will be located alongside the remaining existing buildings in a landscaped campus setting.
All new build elements will be net-zero carbon in operation and this will be achieved through a combination of enhanced building fabric, passive ventilation chimneys, mechanical heat recovery systems and on-site offsetting of energy use, through an extensive bio-solar roof system.
Lytham St Annes High School is also committed to reducing its carbon footprint, aiming to be a Net Carbon Zero site. It believes that the success and strength of the school is in the pupils, the culture and the behaviour. Striving to become net carbon zero with new classrooms and first class facilities will match the school’s excellent reputation in the region.
For Hoard-it, this project included contract hire, installation of the steel hoarding panels at the construction site, dismantling and temporary works design.
