Harris Academy, Purley Way

Faithful+Gould were appointed by The London Borough of Croydon to act as their Project Managers, Cost Consultants and Project Supervisors to design and deliver a new three form entry academy primary school.

All teams came together to provide efficient and high quality services: with Cost Consultants who worked collaboratively with the contractor to achieve a £225k reduction against the contractor’s initial tender sum; Project Managers that were able to monitor the Contractor's construction activities and maintain a very challenging pre-construction timetable; and Project Supervisors who worked tirelessly to ensure the project close out was achieved.

Despite tight deadlines and completion dates that were considered impossible, Faithful+Gould were able to work alongside the Design and Build Contractor to take into consideration site logistics as well as the contractor's welfare accomodation, that resulted in a successful start of term in September 2017.

The client comments: ‘Faithful+Gould have successfully managed a constantly changing brief from the Sponsor to deliver the scheme on time, collaboratively with the contractor, despite a very ambitious programme required to meet the demand for pupil places in Croydon and the grant funding for the project. The overall performance from Faithful+Gould has been excellent’.
