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.

They are also providing a number of multi-disciplinary design services, which include architecture, interior and landscape, as well as structural engineering and building services.

Andrew Rowe, managing director at Concertus said: “We are delighted that this phase has been awarded to Barnes, as it means that we will be able to work with a contractor that is already familiar with and fully understands the project.”
