£2.5m Yorkshire academy extension completed by construction consultants MAC

Building work on a £2.5m extension to Birkenshaw’s BBG Academy has been completed allowing the secondary school to improve its teaching facilities.

In a build project managed by construction consultancy MAC, the new facilities include 12 new classrooms for a range of subjects, an extended dining area, changing facilities and additional external areas which will provide improved conditions and an overall increased capacity for students.

Specialist Education construction consultants MAC worked closely with the Trust to help them secure funding from the Education and Skills Funding Agency for the project and to oversee its construction in a quick and cost-effective timeframe.

The firm were appointed as contract administrators, quantity surveyors and principal construction design managers.

Alex Laycock, director at MAC said: “This has been a hugely successful project and we are delighted to have been able to support Rodillian and the team at BBG to deliver on its ambitions of expansion and improvement within the restraints of its budget.

“In addition to this, the scheme was delivered by a former pupil of the school, Jack Crabtree, who provided Project Management from inception to completion.

“We have a very effective UK supply chain to ensure that projects can be delivered quickly and cost effectively benefitting our public sector clients -and on this occasion, that led to significant cost savings.”
