Construction under way for Sybil Andrew Academy
Ipswich-based Barnes Construction has been awarded the contract to build the sports facilities at the New Sybil Andrews Academy at Moreton Hall, Bury St Edmunds.
This award follows on from Barnes’ success in winning the initial multi-million pound contract to build the school, which when completed late next year will provide state-of-the-art education facilities with a capacity to eventually accommodate 1,400 students.
Work will begin on the sports facility phase in the spring of next year and will run alongside the construction of the school.
Concertus design & property consultants is project managing the build on behalf of client, Suffolk County Council.
