Ladygrove Primary School, Telford

Client: Telford & Wrekin Council
Project: Extension

Ladygrove Primary School in Dawley, Telford, was our first school extension project.

We completed the £3.2m project alongside Telford & Wrekin Council. The high quality build includes five new classrooms, a hall, nursery, toilets and a new commercial kitchen.

The extension is a timber frame build with brickwork cladding. It has areas of high level feature cladding broken with curtain walling and windows. We removed the exisiting kitchen and replaced it with a much larger one which takes place partly in the existing school and partly in the new timber frame.

As well as the internal works, we delivered a soft play surfaced play area to the rear of the nursery, new car parking and paved areas within newly landscaped grounds.

Jo Weichlbauer, Ladygrove’s Head Teacher, also commented:

“Speaking on behalf of everyone at the school, we are so pleased with the new extension. This exciting move forward increases our roll to 420 pupils and I am looking forward to welcoming everyone to our newly extended home in September.

“Thank you to everyone at Morris Property who worked hard to keep disruption to a minimum and to local residents who have been so patient whilst works have been undertaken.”

We’ve completed a series of projects for Telford & Wrekin Council and our proven track record resulted in us winning the Ladygrove contract.

Councillor Shirley Reynolds, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for Children, Young People and Education, said: “I am delighted that the new extension and soft play area at Ladygrove Primary is ready for the new school term.

“It is a major development for the school and means significant extra capacity in a fast-growing area of Telford.”
