Heathfield Primary Academy

The client and community at Heathfield had been badly let down in previous years. The site was partly demolished, and the school was in temporary accommodation. 

The project stands out for many reasons but none more than the culture – the project produced a truly collaborative programme.

Listening to everyone is important and making sure everyone understands that there is no hidden agenda, smoke screens or margin to slip on dates can instil a determination to get it ‘right first time’. 

Heathfield Primary Academy recently won ‘Building Project of the Year’ at the Constructing Excellence Awards 2018.
