Bardsley have secured the contract to construct the new Halifax Primary Building for the Academy which will see the School become the first through School (from 4 to 16 years) in Calderdale.
The £4.4m project was procured through the YORbuild Framework, the first education based project delivered through the Framework from Calderdale Council.
The Building has been design by AHR Architects (Leeds) who have worked with the local authority and planners to develop a design which meets the needs of the Academy whilst connecting with the local environment.
The design comprises a mix of materials from reconstituted stone, brickwork and aluminium curtain walling and windows in keeping with the surrounding area whilst helping create a new identity for the Academy.
The two storey steel frame building will provide over 2,000m2 of new facilities from teaching space, ICT and library rooms, a school hall, dining and kitchen facilities together with extensive hard and soft landscaping play and learning external space with a new car park specific to the new building.
The project will commence at the end of January 2015 and be completed for the start of the January 2016 term.
