Eric Wright completes four school builds

Bamber Bridge-based Eric Wright Construction has completed build projects at four schools ready for the start of the new term.

The work originated through the Department for Education's Low Value Framework, which Eric Wright joined in November 2017.

The projects include the design and construction of Lotus School in Blackpool, a purpose-built school to accommodate up to 48 students who have an education, health and care plan for Social, Emotional and Mental Health as their primary need.

The second project completed is Preston Muslim Girls High School, a design and build project which has delivered a new two storey school building, additional classrooms, science and ICT suites as well as SEN rooms and staff office areas.

In Bolton, the team has completed the second phase of the design and construction of a temporary single storey modular school building for 180 pupils with main entrance, classrooms, science and ICT suites, special educational needs (SEN) rooms and staff office areas for the Kings Leadership Academy.

A single storey building was also completed for Fairfield Road Primary School in Droylsden, Manchester, which provides a new hall, canteen, kitchen and servery facilities, ICT provision and staff office areas together with landscaping works.

James Eager, framework director for Eric Wright Construction, said: “Despite the immense challenges of the last six months, our teams have worked unbelievably hard to meet the agreed completion dates, whilst working under Covid-safe site conditions and I’d like to thank the team for all of their hard work in helping us to deliver these much needed new school facilities."
