Pre-School and Playgroup Building for Andoversford School

Client: Andoversford Primary School

Location: Andoversford, Gloucestershire

The primary school serves several hamlets and villages around Cheltenham and wanted to provide a resource for the local community, to house a playgroup for pre-school children, a mother and toddler group and after-school groups.

The head teacher realised that due to budget and timing constraints, a factory-fabricated building was their best option and asked Pinelog to carry out the project on a turnkey basis, so that the school's individual requirements could be incorporated at the design stage.

The insulated timber-frame structure provides a modern facility with 72 m2 of partitioned floor space.  The building is clad in durable larch from sustainable European forests, and with uPVC windows and doors, will require minimum maintenance.

Construction, wiring, plumbing and fitting out work was completed at Pinelog's Bakewell factory which meant that 'down time' on site was kept to a minimum.  The building was delivered to site in two halves and bolted together, with delivery coinciding with the start of the school summer holiday.
