Farsley Joint Schools Scheme

The refurbishment and extension of two schools and a nursery within walking distance of each other, carried out under a single contract.


Full description

The original Westroyd Infants and Springbank Primary School buildings are Victorian, constructed of stone below elaborate slate covered roofs. Both are of local heritage value, with Springbank located near Farsley Town, a designated conservation area. Therefore sympathetic design considerations were required to marry in with the existing buildings and surroundings.


All of the works were completed over a one year period. The largest extension, a six classroom block, took place at Springbank along with a fully phased internal refurbishment. The school remained fully operational during works, utilising temporary accommodation to minimise disruption.


Westroyd Infants School and Nursery are both located in residential areas with restricted access. Fully phased internal refurbishments were undertaken and the extensions completed whilst remaining operational. Carefully planned decants took place allowing the phased progression of building works, with the majority of disruptive works being carried out during school holiday periods.
