Morgan Sindall appointed to £4.9 million Tower Hamlets primary school expansion

Morgan Sindall has won a contract to expand Cayley Primary School in London’s Tower Hamlets, as part of a £4.9 million scheme.

The project will see the existing four storey Victorian school extended from a two form entry school to a three form entry school. The development will also include the construction of an additional nursery class and is due to be completed in October next year.

Staff and pupils at the school will remain on site and continue with their normal activities during the construction process, so the design of the extension to the building has been adapted to ensure that there is minimal disruption to day-to-day school activities.

Peter Jacobs, managing director of Morgan Sindall’s London office, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to extend Cayley Primary School and to be able to use our extensive expertise in constructing education developments to play a role in ensuring that more children are able to take advantage of the school’s excellent facilities.

“Cayley Primary is surrounded by residential properties, so we will be working hard to ensure local residents and the pupils and staff at the school are not disturbed by the construction work.”

Morgan Sindall was appointed to the project through the £1 billion Improvement and Efficiency South East (iESE) framework, one of the key construction frameworks in London and the South East.

The four year framework is available for use by public sector organisations to procure major building works across the full spectrum of new build and refurbishment schemes in education, health and community buildings.
