Completion At Lakeside School, Liverpool

Last month we completed the £4.8 million scheme for the construction of a new Special Educational Needs (SEN) secondary school in Huyton, Liverpool.

The project schedule was carried out over 44 weeks, and involved the demolition of an existing farmhouse and buildings and remediation of contaminated ground.

The school comprises a steel-framed teaching block, a kitchen/dining area, an administration block, and external works. The project team also created specialist IT/Media room and Science, DT, and Food Tech facilities, fitted out with bespoke furniture, and installed a commercial kitchen adjacent to a full-height dining area with roof lights and acoustic panels. The building used a combination of brickwork, timber cladding, and render, while external finishes included block paving, tarmac, slabs, and permeable grasscrete.

A key challenge was completing the works in a live school environment, where the safety and wellbeing of both pupils and staff was paramount. However, the project was completed on time and on budget, and feedback from the client, staff, pupils, and parents has been overwhelmingly positive.
