Arborfield Secondary School

Wokingham Borough Council commissioned Faithful+Gould in 2014 to provide Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Principal Designer Services for a New Build Secondary school to be occupied by Bohunt Education Trust. The new school facilities accommodate 1200 pupils and serves the ever-expanding growth of Wokingham and the surrounding areas.

The New Secondary School includes:

  • New Sports Facilities, including a 3G Pitch and multi-use games areas
  • Teaching Spaces – Including innovative science, technology, engineering and maths facilities
  • Beautifully landscaped areas for drama and the arts

Following our appointment in October 2014, Faithful+Gould were tasked with delivery of the school in time for the first intake of pupils in September 2016. From a standing start we obtained planning permission and procured competitive tenders through OJEU based on a RIBA Stage 2 design and were ready to start on site in July 2015. Working with the Contractor, Dawnus, we re-programmed the work from two phases into one phase and also carried out a concurrent refurbishment of an adjacent existing building to accommodate the first intake of pupils.
