Progress update on site at New Delaval Primary School…

Work on the £1m council investment at New Delaval Primary School in Blyth is continuing to make steady progress as part of Northumberland County Council’s investment into school’s across the North East.

The planned extension and redesign will fulfil the Council’s requirement for additional spaces, with the addition of three new classrooms increasing pupil capacity by 105. The design of the extension has successfully created a functional space for the increase in pupils, whilst also achieving the schools request that no loss in outdoor recreational space for students would incur.

Following a tender process, Robertson constructions were rewarded with the New Delaval project and are well underway with the build.

With the successful installation of the LGS frame complete, the insulation of the internal walls is now underway to form the spaces and acoustic separations within the structure. The external features of the project are also developing, with the blockwork and brickwork ongoing and the installation of gutters, roof insulation and roof covering all simultaneously taking place.

Architectural Assistant James Street said, “It is fantastic to see the progress being made across the site. We have developed a strong and collaborative relationship between the school and Council to ensure that the creativity and functionality of our design is delivered and adapted where necessary to fit the needs of our client. We look forward to continued progress and the completion of the build!”
