Last month we completed our portion of the extensive £9m works at the all new Selworthy School’s Hazelbrook Campus in Taunton, Somerset for Willmott Dixon and we’re thrilled to show you the photos.

Through the Scape Major Works Framework, Somerset County Council have expanded Selworthy School with a brand new campus that will cater for their Secondary and 6th Form students with learning disabilities  providing upto 100 extras places, while the existing campus will continue to cater for their primary pupils with learning disabilities.

In May last year (2018) Willmott Dixon asked us to supply prices for a number of shade and shelter structures on the new campus. We provided them with costs for two 6m x 6m Ulverston Umbrellas, four 5.6m x 3.8m Coniston Wall Mounted Canopies and two 3m x 3.8m Coniston Wall Mounted Canopies.

We were really keen to win this job so when Willmott Dixon contacted us to say that they were on site completing the construction of the building and were now at the stage where they would like to order the canopies and arrange installation, we were delighted. Since our last contact, the canopy requirements had changed slightly so we re-submitted prices for the new designs and sizes which included 11 structures.

On supply of the new prices, we highlighted our recently awarded Willmott Dixon projects which include: a parliament building in Westminster, Wixams Primary Academy, William Morris School and Ive Farm Outdoor Sporting Hub which were also all Scape projects.

The final order comprised of 11 canopies and shelters and due to the size of the project, we installed the structures over two phases as shown below:

Phase 1:
Installed March-April 2019
2no. 6m x 6m Ulverston Umbrellas
4no. 5.6m x 3.8m Coniston Wall Mounted Canopies
2no. 3m x 3.8m Coniston Wall Mounted Canopies

Phase 2:

1no. 8.25m x 2.05 Grasmere Timber Clad Cycle Shelter
1no. 9.2m x 2.05m Grasmere Timber Clad Bin Shelter

The installation went ahead smoothly, and the Willmott Dixon site staff were very happy with our installation team stating that our guys needed next to no support from them and left the site clean and tidy, and they look forward to seeing us on future projects.
