Primary school pupils and staff will benefit from an improved environment following a £3.7m refurbishment delivered by Diamond Build PLC.
The works were completed at Chestnuts Primary School in Tottenham on behalf of Haringey Council. The project has added two new classrooms to the site and enhanced the exterior of the school’s main building with new windows and a refurbished roof. Brickwork has also been repaired by the Diamond Build team.
Inside the school, the heating and water system has been upgraded to improve energy efficiency which is further enhanced through new loft insulation. New emergency lighting, fire alarms, data cabling have also been installed along with decoration throughout.
Stuart Darwin, Senior Site Manager for Diamond Build PLC, said: “This was a logistically challenging project as the majority of the works were delivered while the school was open and at one point in the programme, all areas had to remain accessible.
“As the school only had one classroom available for decanting, we constructed the two new classrooms first. These were situated within an existing sports hall and completed over two weekends. This work enabled the pupils to move from the building’s first floor into the new classrooms and for us to safely proceed with the rest of the works while minimising disruption.”
Formed in 2004, Chestnuts Primary can accommodate 420 boys and girls.
