Kier has been appointed by Norfolk County Council to deliver a brand new £5m Gayton Primary School and Nursery. The works will be delivered through the Norfolk County Council Framework and the project will be designed and Project Managed by Norfolk Property Services.
The new purpose designed, single storey 1600m2 primary and nursery facilities will relocate the existing Gayton Primary School to a larger site, increasing capacity from 139 to 210 school places. The new school will comprise seven classrooms and group rooms, with a central library and resource area and a multi-purpose hall. The nursery building will provide two children’s rooms, associated toilets and nappy change, along with a shared kitchen area, storage and administration areas.
Kier is starting on site in autumn 2020 and the project is due to complete in winter 2021.
Mark Dady, managing director at Kier Regional Building Eastern, commented, “This project will provide much needed additional school places in the area for years to come and we’re delighted to have been appointed to deliver it. We have a wealth of experience in providing highest quality education facilities for Norfolk.”
This appointment builds on the expertise Kier have in the sector and its recent work with Norfolk County Council and Norfolk Property Services at Hethersett Primary school. In September, it completed works on the brand-new White House Farm Primary School in Sprowston, creating an additional 420 primary school places in the area.
