CONTRACTOR Stepnell has made significant progress with three of its education projects in the southern region - Gordon’s School, Canford School and The Woodroffe School.
Located in Woking, Surrey, Gordon’s School’s new sports facility was completed last October following a £6m, 36-week programme that continued to progress throughout lockdown. The ultra-modern build – designed by NVB Architects – includes a 1,223 square metre sports hall with associated changing rooms and supporting spaces.
Stepnell also installed a new, all-weather 3G pitch with the help of S&C Slatter to provide a high-quality playing surface for both football and rugby. Stepnell also remained on site to complete work at Canford School in Wimborne, Dorset on a new, 56-bed boarding house.
The £3.9m development also included a garage and external works such as paving, asphalt, fencing and top soiling. Stepnell has also continued working at the Woodroffe School in Dorset. The £2 million development will include a new, two-storey teaching block with classrooms and a group learning space, library resource centre and additional office space to help expand the school’s academic offering.
