Kier starts on £5m Stockport school

Kier Northern, part of the Kier Group, has been awarded a £5.73m contract for the design and construction of Rose Hill Primary School in Stockport.
 
Kier Northern was appointed by Stockport Council and Stockport-based NPS Group to carry out the work which is being funded by the primary capital programme, an initiative introduced by the previous Government.
 
Rose Hill has operated on two sites since September 2009 and the new school building at Rose Hill will open in 2012.
 
The new build, designed by architect Daniel Gibbons from NPS, will replace an existing school building on the Elmfield Drive site in Marple, which the council said is over 40 years old and in poor condition.
 
Lynn Bragg, headteacher at Rose Hill Primary School, said: "The building will help transform the school and allow us to offer children an enhanced educational experience."

Erection of new 2.5 form entry (525 pupils) primary school together with a 20 place nursery and additionally resourced provision for 18 pupils together with new access, roads & car parking works, landscaping, outdoor sports provision and associated facilities for £5m...

Makes you think eh..?

The car parking may be better as it was a nightmare even when there was only 300 or so pupils there. But I really don't like those steps/balconies. An accident waiting to happen. Romiley is big but doesn't have that type of design-I don't think (I have only seen it driving past though). I hope they don't try closing anymore schools. If you look at the stats they had surplus places as did most other local schools, so technically you could close one and have room for them to go to Rose Hill. I just hope that doesn't happen.

Steps I thought they were slides in the play ground,  surely if they are steps they will have a glass type roof on or there maybe some nasty accidents when the frost comes, steps and young children don't go well together do they ?

I am not sure, Miss M. I assumed them to be stairs by the plan, with an open balcony. I agree with you that it isn't a safe idea really. One of my kids had a nasty accident on steps which is what made me think of it. The council were asking for feedback on the plans from the local area  and I did mention it to them but they obviously thought it was fine.

The building appears a lot higher than the picture posted and indeed a different design but I suppose it is hard to visualise until it is complete , it looks a very Europen in design but maybe that's the Italian in me ?

I am pretty sure that for such a new building as this, all appropriate accessibility and health and safety requirements have been designed in.

I hope so but still feel alot of steps is not the best for groups of small children, same with balconies. Hopefully they will be well supervised.

Spoke to someone from the school and the outside stairs were taken out of the plans at a very early stage.  This is a very old picture apparently.

That is very good news. It's the first thing that worried me when I saw that original picture. Anyone know where the latest plan is?

People at first hated the Eiffel Tower and the Golden Gate Bridge  ;)

There's an absolutely massive crane on the site now at the end of our road. The kids are very excited  8)
