This project is carried out over 3 phases. Phase one of project required the existing school to be demolished and temporary accommodation to be installed while the new build was to take place. This entailed a great deal of co-ordination between AEM Ltd and the contractors involved as well as the school.

AEM Ltd had to ensure that strict guidelines were issued and adhered to when it came to working in this live and complex environment. AEM staff had to understand and also comply with child protection laws and procedures.

Each stage of the project so far has been delivered on time and also within budget. Regular meeting have been held to ensure that targets and objectives of this project will be brought in line with the programme of works.
