Ronald Ross Site Visit

Ronald Ross School Councillors from years 3, 4, 5 and 6 recently visited site for an exclusive tour of their new school.   Neilcott’s Project Manager Barry Deagan accompanied the students and staff around site providing them with an overview of the site works to date.  Barry discussed the works currently being undertaken and gave them an explanation of what each piece of machinery on the site did.  He also reminded them of the visit that “Ivor Goodsite” made at the start of the project when he advised all students of the dangers of construction sites.  Members of the School Council took plenty of photographs and notes and reported back to the whole school on the progress of their new school.  They also left a School Mascot keeping an eye on Barry in his office!IMG_2513IMG_2561

Child Safety Week 2016

CAPT_CSW_2016_rgbNeilcott is once again supporting Child Safety Week which this year runs from Monday 6 to Sunday 12 June.  Child Safety Week is the flagship annual campaign run by the Child Accident Prevention Trust.  They are the UK’s leading charity committed to reducing the number of children and young people killed, disabled or seriously injured in preventable accidents.  Their aim is to secure a safer environment for children of all ages, so they can live life to the full while protected from serious injury of death.  Child Safety Week enables them to do this by bringing together individuals and organisations around the country to promote safety messages to families in a fun and engaging way.  Accidents are a leading cause of death, serious injury and acquired disability for children and young people in the UK.  They account for three deaths every week and over 2,000 hospital admissions.  Neilcott will be reinforcing the safety message upon all of our sites with Hunt the Hazard Posters, promotional signs, safety talks and the provision of action packs and posters to all schools that we are working upon.Site-Visit

St. Mary’s Catholic School

St Marys 2St MarysNeilcott is delighted to have been awarded the construction of a new Early Years building and two storey teaching block to St. Mary’s Roman Catholic school on South Street Isleworth for the London Borough of Hounslow to provide:

  • Nursery and reception classrooms with associated group rooms and ancillary accommodation
  • 8 Classrooms with associated group rooms and ancillary accommodation
  • Conversion of 2 existing classrooms into a small hall
  • Expansion of the existing medical inspection bay

The Early Years building is located at the rear of the school site to enable the existing access road to be utilised as a separate access to the facility for the younger children and their parents.  As this facility will have different time tables to the Key Stage 2 children, it was considered necessary to limit the crossover of parents accessing the main site to allow improved supervision and site security.  The new two storey extension is arranged to provide pairs of classrooms for each year group.  Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 will be located in this building and each form of entry will be segregated by a folding partition between each classroom to create flexibility in the teaching space.  Classrooms are situated facing the playground to allow further flexibility of spaces to provide the opportunity for outdoor teaching activities and to reduce the impact of overlooking to neighbouring properties, as well as preventing views into the school from the flats behind.
