G&H wins £3m Don Valley Super-School work

G&H Building Services has won a £3 million mechanical and electrical contract to develop a super school and community hub on the former Don Valley Stadium site.

The contract with BAM Construction is part of the £17m school development that will offer 1,200 places for children.

G&H Building Services will design and build full mechanical and electrical services including a passive, ventilation system in classrooms, rainwater harvesting to increase sustainability levels and connect to a district heating scheme being developed by E.ON.

The new academy school will see £13.4 million provided by central government grant and £3.3 million from Sheffield Council’s capital schools budget.

Managing Director at G&H Building Services, Graham Kelly, said: “This is a significant contract win for us and continues our success over recent years which has seen the business regularly be chosen for work of this value and calibre.

“It is a major scheme for Sheffield and the community hub element means it is of great importance not just for those attending the school but the wider neighbourhood that will benefit enormously.

“It will be a state-of-the-art facility that is aiming to receive a BREAAM ‘very good’ accreditation and our work will play a major part in this, showcasing best practice in the way it operates.”

G&H Building Services will start on-site in January with the school to open in September 2015.
