Gordon Infant School

Project name and location:

Gordon Primary School

Brief summary of the project:

To meet Ilford’s growing demand for primary school places, Cosmur delivered refurbishment and extension works to this community school which saw an increase in capacity to a total intake of 420 four-to-eleven-year-olds. The works were completed in two phases, with the school remaining in full operation. The first comprised enabling and temporary works, and a new Multi Use Games Area. Phase 2 comprised demolition works and construction of a new two storey teaching block. This was incidentally Cosmur’s 100th registered Considerate Constructors Scheme site and we achieved very high scores for the project, maintaining our Partner Status under the scheme.
