New sports and performing arts complex underway at Eagle House School
Progress on the construction of an energy efficient £2 million sports hall and performing arts centre at Eagle House School in Sandhurst, one of the oldest preparatory schools in the country, is underway, led by an experienced team from Beard Construction. Due for completion in February next year, the new buildings will complement the top class facilities offered by the school, which is part of Wellington College.
David Stygall, Bursar for Eagle House School explains: “The new buildings will transform our facilities for sports and performing arts and we are really pleased with the progress the construction team has made. Beard is a good choice for us, we know they can deliver on time and in budget, but it is the day-to-day liaison with the team and how they cooperate and work with us that is so important. The site is well monitored and managed and they work around our needs – all critical to the daily running of a busy school.”
Minimising disruption is especially important to the school. Careful segregation of the site with safe walkways ensures normal school routines can continue and construction traffic is timed to avoid the busiest periods in the school day.
Beard is no stranger to Wellington College having completed the impressive Munro Sports Pavilion in 2009. Site Manager Malcolm Broughton who managed the project in 2009 is also managing the site at Eagle House School – providing strong consistency for the client.
