HIGHLY COMMENDED!

Ely Primary School...

We received the 'Highly Commended' accolade for Isle of Ely Primary School at the RIDBA Awards 2017 which came second in the 'Education & Research' category, beaten by the CUBRIC building - the eventual 2017 overall winner.

Built by main contractor Kier Eastern, the new 630 place Primary School, supports the need for pupil places within the catchment area whilst allowing for future housing development. The single-storey building provides 21 classrooms, a main hall with multi-colour glazing, a library, plus accommodation for pre-school children and after school clubs. 

On completion of the project Bryony Surtees, Executive Head Teacher of the school, which is run by the Active Learning Trust, said “The school looks amazing – it was well worth the wait!”

Details:

  • 260 tonnes of hot-rolled structural steelwork  
  • 370 m² Tata D35 galvanised metal deck
