Aberdare Community School

client: Laing O’Rourke

Sector: Education

Aberdare Community School is a new 1600 pupil secondary school with an adjoining sports centre and sports facility.

One major factor of the project is that Laing O’Rourke were looking to carry out as much of the construction off site to minimise work hours on site. This was primarily utilising their Smartwall partitioning system, a rigid pre-fabricated wall panel, designed to integrate with Mechanical and Electrical service runs whenever possible.

Our services included a mixture of our traditional partition / wall-lining & suspended ceiling installation integrating with the Smart-wall system.

The project presented significant challenges including access, working from mobile elevated work platforms (MEWP) to complete 4 atriums.

Collaboration was key to this project, working alongside other subcontractors. The programme durations were tight but with good collaborative planning, the building was completed with a high-quality finish.
