It was announced in March that our multi-discipline project proposal for Esteem Academy had been approved, meaning that works can begin to develop Fountains High School, based in Burton on Trent.

Our team, managed by Jack Cooper, worked alongside the Esteem MAT’s team, as well as Q+A Planning, and other third-party consultants, to ensure each proposed aspect of the scheme is achievable from a cost perspective, relevant to the staff and pupils, and sustainable – both in education and for the environment.

The concept design grew from simple drawings to 3D visuals, to the proposal being accepted within 13 weeks. The project will kick off in Summer 2023, and we as a business cannot wait to get started, initially installing a new sports hall with changing rooms and a multi-use games area (MUGA) pitch.

Last week, it was confirmed that we had received formal instruction to proceed to the detailed design stage, meaning we can work even more closely with Esteem MAT to achieve their organisations goals.

As this ambitious project progresses, revolutionising Fountains High School, our hope at Eddisons is that other Multi-Academy Trusts will be inspired to further their own goals through thorough planning and collaborative working.
