The Haven Primary School

Due to our excellent reputation in the education sector, Faithful+Gould was selected to provide project management, cost management and CDM coordinator services for The Haven Primary School in Eastbourne.

The principal objective of the project was to increase the capacity of the School from one form of entry to two forms of entry, achieved through two extension blocks and a new entrance and reception area. Internal alterations were carried out to meet the requirements of BB99 (PDF 4.7MB) along with the provision of a new Multi Use Games Area (MUGA).

The project faced the challenges of a live working environment – implementing a complex phased construction programme to keep the school in operation without impacting on the education delivery.

In consultation with the School we carefully divided the works into five phases that were mapped to suit operations and reflected in the sectional completion dates agreed with the contractor. The precise planning led to the project being completed in 78 weeks, 3 weeks ahead of programme and £250k under budget.
