St Mary’s School Shinfield is now well underway on site. Lakehouse Contractors are cracking on with the classroom extension block and external works, in a live school environment, with care and consideration to the teachers and pupils. The new build is at Metsec Lightweight metal frame on a suspended ground floor on traditional strip footings on relatively shallow gravels. Some steel framing is required to support the large cantilevered canopies and covered walkways. The external works proposals increase the parking capacity and improve the hard and soft play areas. The FW and SW drainage connects into main sewers on or close to the school site.
