Work starts on state-of-the-art Hartlepool school
Steelwork erection has started on the new English Martyrs School in Hartlepool which forms part of a major Government education programme in the North East.
The new school will replace existing buildings that will be demolished once students and staff have decamped.
The new state-of-the-art school building will comprise a single, three-storey block offering more than 9,000m² of space. The U-shaped building will include a wide range of departments zoned around an external courtyard.
The school will have a capacity of 1,750 students and 220 staff. Working on behalf of main contractor BAM, Harry Marsh [Engineers] are fabricating, supplying and erecting the project’s steelwork.
