Education – Ewell Castle School

Actavo | Building Solutions was appointed directly by the client to undertake works to replace their existing nursery building. With only a small window of opportunity over the summer holidays the scope of works included the demolition and disposal of the existing nursery, delivery and installation of the modular units and roof system and the associated landscaping and connections.

The site itself posed many challenges, in particular, the tight access and removal of materials from site.  The building is situated in a conservation area with many protected trees in close proximity.  Regular liaison with the neighbours and school ensured a smooth construction process.The modular building was open plan with a sliding partition, dimmable lighting and spotlights for performance integrated into the suspended ceiling. Children’s and accessible WC facilities and storage for all the nursery equipment were included as part of the project.

"Actavo was able to provide a bespoke solution in a timeframe we did not think was possible. On the last day of teaching we were still teaching in the old building but when we returned, the transformation was beyond our expectations. They took our dream and delivered an even better reality. What we have, in the space of just six weeks, is not just a nursery but an area where we hold events and assemblies and is a fantastic addition to the facilities we already provide."
