With its appointment on a second project at one of Wolverhampton’s most prestigious schools, national property and construction consultancy Wakemans is reaping the benefits of its education sector expertise.
Wakemans is acting as quantity surveyor on a new science block at Wolverhampton Girls’ High School. The building has been designed by Seymour Harris Architects (SHA), which was instrumental in the School securing Selective School Expansion Fund (SSEF) funding last year.
Joe Harris at SHA said: “As Wakemans are a trusted partner and have worked closely with us on the first project for the school, you have really appreciated what we as architects and the school are trying to achieve. We were therefore keen to work together again on this expansion project that will provide dedicated science, dining and community sports facilities in readiness for a growth in pupil numbers over the next five years.”
Wakemans quantity surveyor Gerard Belfield said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with SHA on this important school expansion project.”
Over the past 40 years Wakemans has worked in partnership with SHA on a wide variety of regional and national projects. Most recently the two companies have collaborated on the £2.4million Sixth Form hub at Wolverhampton Girls’ High School and a £4.2million teaching block at Joseph Leckie Academy in Walsall.
