We are delighted to be working with Bouygues UK on the build of a brand new school in Barry thanks to a £34.7 million investment by the Vale of Glamorgan Council and Welsh Government.
The Pencoedtre High School project is a part of the 21st Century Schools programme, which will see over £135 million invested in transforming educational facilities across the Vale of Glamorgan.
The three-storey building with state-of-the-art facilities will be built by Bouygues UK and will accommodate 1,250 pupils.
The redevelopment will include a dining hall, a courtyard, a sixth form area, performance spaces and excellent sporting facilities including an all-weather hockey pitch, grassed football and rugby pitches, games courts and an indoor sports hall.
We will be installing the Kawneer Windows, Doors and Curtain Walling system while AB Access Control will supply and install the school’s automatic doors system.
As with all projects we are working on at the moment, the site will be operating in line with Welsh Government social distancing legalisation and under the Construction Leadership Council’s site operating procedures.
Alan Brayley, our managing director, said:
“We are very excited to be working on a project that will provide state-of-the-art education facilities for so many young people. The building will provide an inspirational environment for pupils to learn; we are also delighted to be providing both the Kawneer Windows, Doors and Curtain Walling system as well as the automatic doors via AB Access Control.”
