The Kings School, Macclesfield

Project: The Kings School Sixth Form, Macclefield
Architect: Ellis Williams Architects


The redevelopment of the Kings College 6th Form on the existing site has been successfully completed on time and on budget.  BCM were appointed by the college on Performance Duties throughout the Design and Construction process.  BCM were retained by the client and not novated.

BCM worked very closely throughout this project with Ellis Williams Architects and Wright Mottershaw.  (We often work as part of a team together as we are all involved in Manchester City Council Framework 1).  The Contractor was Carefoot and the relationships were extremely good throughout the works.  The logistics on the site were complex due to the location of the works and the need to keep the school and college in full operation throughout.

The project just pre-dated the introduction of Part L in 2006 but we introduced heat recovery to the ventilation system with the resultant energy saving for the school. The project is viewed as a success by the Client, the Design Team and the Contractors.
