SEN school recognised in RICS awards
Glenwood School in Benfleet, Essex has won the Community Benefit category in the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Awards.
The £15m Special Educational Needs (SEN) school – which was featured in Education Design & Build’s January/February edition - was commissioned by Essex County Council through its own construction framework utilising leading property, construction and infrastructure consultancy Pick Everard for project and cost management services, with design and build expertise being provided by construction firm Morgan Sindall.
The new state-of-the-art building includes 26 classrooms, a hydrotherapy pool and specialist facilities to help meet pupils’ sensory needs, including swing therapy rooms and a trampoline room to help promote body awareness, sequencing, postural control and organisation of the senses.
Gary Buick, director at Pick Everard said: “We’re delighted that Glenwood has won this incredibly prestigious award. “This project was delivered to address a severe shortage of SEN school places in Essex, and the team worked closely with the school to ensure that the design met the needs of the pupils and fitted the ethos of the school.”
