Heathfield Community School
Monkton Heathfield, Somerset
In October 2015, Futures for Somerset (the Somerset Local Education Partnership) were appointed by Somerset County Council to undertake a Capacity Review and Masterplanning exercise for Heathfield Community School.
Heathfield Community School is located on the outskirts of Taunton and provides secondary (KS4) and Post-16 education to a wide catchment area. Heathfield is currently a Local Authority maintained school.
Works identified in the Capacity Review and Masterplanning exercise that have now been completed as Phase 1 works are:
Science, Arts and General Teaching Block
Performing Arts Block
ASD Facility Remodeling and Refurbishment
Futures for Somerset worked with Halsall Construction to provide a turnkey Design and Build solution for the Local Authority.
Futures for Somerset have provided a range of services into this project. Delivering an end-to-end service we have provided Feasibility, Project Management, Procurement and Employer’s Agent Services. In addition we have also assisted the Local Authority with the management of off-site works and land transactions.
Phase 1 project value is in the region of £1.8 million and includes the delivery of infrastructure solutions to the site for utilities and highways connections. This project has provided unique challenges and required close liaison with a number of stakeholders to ensure smooth delivery.
Project Completed in June 2018.
