Building Consultancy For Armthorpe Academy


Eddisons were instructed by the Academy to apply for Condition Improvement Funding (CIF) to replace the dilapidated modular classroom.

We identified that the building had come to the end of its useful life. Rotten timber cladding, thermally inefficient single glazed windows and failed roof covering had resulted in water ingress into internal electrics. This made the building a health and safety concern for students and staff.

We also found that the accessibility of the unit was non-compliant with the Equality Act 2010, as it did not provide sufficient access for non-ambulant people.

In addition, the fire alarm provision was not suitable for the application, and its poor thermally efficiency meant large annual heating costs.


We successfully secured CIF funding of £150k through the ESFA and the Academy then appointed the Building & Project Consultancy team to manage the project.  This also included undertaking the roles of Principal Designer (under CDM Regulations 2015) and Contract Administrator. The works entailed the demolition and removal of the existing dilapidated modular building including removing the existing redundant gas supply, the delivery of a new modular building to replace the old one, and re-landscaping the land around the modular building to suit the new position.

The project was scheduled for a 6 week construction period and was completed over the summer holidays, resulting in no disruption to the Academy's curriculum or day to day activities.


The project was delivered on budget. The new modular unit has allowed the school to provide a safe and warm teaching environment for pupils over the next 30 years.
