Akeley Wood Senior School Sports Facility
Multi-purpose sports hall
Dove Construction acted as a main contractor for the completion of the sub-structure, ground works and all enabling works to facilitate the erection of the multi-purpose, tented Sports Hall at Akeley Wood Senior School near Buckingham. Dove Construction was appointed in conjunction with CopriSystems, following competitive tender.
The Sports Hall contains a standard four-court facility which, together with office and changing rooms, now forms an integral part of the extensive sports facilities at this private school.
In addition, an existing cricket pavilion was dismantled and re-erected in a different location to accommodate the new hall. The whole area was then landscaped in time for the new term to start.
The project took some five months and was completed within budget and strict timescales to the full satisfaction of the client and has since led to additional projects for the same employer including a further sports hall for the Lower School and refurbishment of the beautiful Grade 2 Listed Junior School building.
Working closely with HB Architects of Rugby and Holden and Lee, Quantity Surveyors of Blackpool, Dove Construction was able to deliver a facility that the school are delighted to use.
