External canopies, shelters and exterior furniture
Whitefield and Fairfield primary schools are part of a £21m scheme by Willmott Dixon in Milton Keynes.
The Council aims to deliver over 10,000 much-needed new school places in the area and Bailey Streetscene was approached at an early stage to partner on the external canopies, shelters and street furniture.
The challenges that were faced were working 9 months in advance of the site completion date, but knowing that access to the working areas would demand that a 'just in time' approach as the scheme neared completion.
Site and design liaison was undertaken, incorporating approval meetings with the council and school leaders.
The result allowed forward design and installation planning to be incorporated in the site programmes which in turn released other trades to complete their works on time.
Bailey Streetscene designed all the supplied products around existing buildings, foundations and play areas enabling all space to be used to its full potential.
Bailey Streetscene's responsibiliites
Cost was an issue on the scheme, but with careful planning and design Bailey Streetscene was able to deliver the supply and install package safely, on time and within budget.
The end result of this project was a very happy end customer (the school) and high praise from Willmott Dixon.
Mark Elliott Senior Building Manager at Willmotts said: “I would like to thank you all for your hard work, blood, sweat and tears in ensuring that the above project was handed over on time and defect free. This in turn also facilitated a very happy school user who marked us highly in their customer feedback score. All of this and more, have been the reasons for the Birmingham LCO awarding the Project of the year award to our Project Team - a great achievement. Please pass on our appreciation to your site teams also.”
