Conlon Construction Finishes £7m Work on Lancashire Schools

Conlon Construction has finished work on two school refurbishment schemes worth almost £7 million in Lancashire.

The projects, commissioned by Lancashire County Council, saw the Preston based contractor refurbish Southlands High School in Chorley and construct new facilities for Lancaster Road Primary School in Morecambe.

Both were to provide bigger facilities to cope with the growing number of pupils.

The £3.6 million scheme at Southlands High School delivered a new sports hall, classroom, changing rooms, offices and reception and increased pupil intake by 30 each year, rising capacity from 190 to 220.

Lancaster Road Primary School is now a three-form entry establishment following a £3.2 million programme of works. The new single-storey building now comprises six classrooms, a multi-use hall, group/interview rooms, a new entrance and a staff room.

The project also included extension of the car park and kitchen facilities.

Guy Parker, managing director at Conlon Construction, said: “There is a distinct lack of school places across the UK and demand is set to increase in the coming years in-line with the growing population.

“As a main contractor with a raft of experience in the education sector amassed over the last 55 years, we are well versed in delivering school, college and university projects and utilised these skills to provide modern facilities for children in Chorley and

Lancaster that will encourage pupils to be the best they can be.”

Meanwhile, Conlon has begun working on a ground-breaking £40 million Hertfordshire hospital.

The firm has kicked off the 65 week project for the new private hospital in Hatfield, Hertfordshire.

The two storey facility is being built on a four acre site close to the University of Hertfordshire’s College Lane Campus. It has been commissioned by One Healthcare and was designed by Manning Elliott.

The hospital will have spaces for 21 beds, three of which will be designated for critical care three ultra clean ventilation (UCV) theatres, 14 day-case pods, two treatment rooms and 10 outpatient consulting rooms.
