We’re pleased to announce that we have been awarded a Salisbury Civic Society conservation award for our work on new classrooms and hall extension at Downton CE Primary School.
The school, originally late Victorian, had already been extended once and the challenge was to match the existing extension style whilst maximising space and creating an open and modern learning facility.
The work at the school was given a commendation and the Society report noted that “the general impression was that a calming and supporting environment had been created, which would be beneficial to staff and parents as well as children.” The report went onto say that “the overall impression was of a very worthwhile project, designed and carried out with great care.”
Paul Bolland, managing director of The hebs Group, said of the award: “We’re extremely proud of our work on Downton CE Primary School and honoured to have had this work recognised with a commendation from Salisbury Civic Society Conservation Awards Scheme 2018. It was a challenging project but one we’re pleased to be associated with.”
The work, from foundations to steel framework, through to the installation of benches and cladding, was completed on time and within budget. For more information on the project, click here.
