Deeley Construction begins work on £1.5m Stratford-upon-Avon school building scheme
Deeley Construction has started work on a £1.5 million school building project in Stratford-upon-Avon.
The construction company, which is part of the Coventry-based Deeley Group, is building a three-storey building at King Edward VI School that will include new classrooms, a library, a sixth form study and IT suites.
The new facilities, which will also see two classrooms converted into laboratories, will open in the autumn.
Martin Gallagher, managing director of Deeley Construction, said it was testament to his team that the company had won the competitive tender.
He said: “We are delighted to have been chosen to deliver what is a major investment for King Edward VI School.
“While the building work is taking place to the rear of the main school building, we have still had to make provisions for the fact that there are pupils and staff in close proximity each day.
“We work regularly in educational environments, so we know only too well what needs to be put into place.
“This follows on from work we are already undertaking at Fordham House in Stratford and underlines our growing presence in the town, which we hope to build on.
“It’s been a positive start to 2017 for Deeley Construction and we are winning a great deal of repeat work as well as projects such as this where it is for a new client at competitive tender.”
