New Frampton school building reaches high point

THE firm behind a brand new multimillion-pound building for Watermore Primary School in Frampton Cotterell invited teachers up to the top to celebrate reaching the highest point of construction.

The new school building will have 14 classrooms to accommodate rising numbers of pupils, a hall and kitchen, two multi-use play spaces, a relocated football pitch and a new car park. Once it is finished, pupils will transfer from the current building which will be demolished to leave space for the outdoor facilities.

Derek Quinn, executive director of builders Midas Construction, said: “We are pleased to be marking the highest point of the development with the team working hard to deliver a high quality, much anticipated school for this community.

“We have worked closely alongside the school and South Gloucestershire Council to deliver the best possible school for the community while keeping pupils and staff constantly up to date with progress.

“We have enjoyed more than 20 visits from pupils to look around the site so far and have also attended assemblies to give updates about our progress on site.”

Pupils’ efforts decorating the hoardings surrounding the new building have won the project an award in the national Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding competition.

Midas hopes to hand the new building over by the end of this year, with both phases completed by next summer. It is one of more than 60 education projects the Bristol-based builder has worked on across the country in the last five years.
