School extension contract for county property firm

Shropshire construction company Morris Property is building to build the three-classroom extension at Newport Primary School’s the Avenue Road site, working alongside Telford and Wrekin Council.

The project, scheduled to take 24 weeks, is expected to be completed this month. Morris Property will build a steel-framed classroom block with an external brick finish and provide new fencing, landscaping and work on the car park.

Contracts Manager, Ian Carswell, from Morris Property said: “We’re thrilled to have won a second contract for a school in the Telford area.  We are looking forward to seeing the build develop and handing it over in early 2020.”

The business is experienced in handling building work discreetly and sensitively and recently completed a major expansion scheme at Ladygrove Primary School in Dawley, Telford. To prevent loss of car parking spaces at Newport, the site team will use one of the new classrooms as its site office while the work is ongoing.

Headteacher, Nicola Moody, commented: “This is such an exciting time for Newport CE Junior School – we are delighted with the prospect of our new three classroom extension and the opportunities these brand new facilities will bring to our children.  Our school family will enjoy watching this project develop and look forward to making full use of our new building.”

The additional classrooms will not increase the school’s existing capacity for 360 pupils but will free up space to meet its learning requirements.
