Project Overview

At Mayfield School, by using offsite technology combined with a fully integrated BIM approach, the design team has reduced the building programme and cost, and substantially reduced embodied carbon. This has solved a very real problem faced by Local Authorities to deliver new school places to meet the rapidly rising demand in London and the South East. Mayfield's successes include the achievement of a 17 month programme including detailed planning submission, reduced embodied carbon, minimised disruption to the school, high level of stakeholder collaboration and "buy in" to the design and high level of customer satisfaction with the outcome. Steve McConaghy, Senior Construction Project Manager at LBR said, "The Mayfield School Project was delivered on time and within budget (£18.2m) - excellent value for money, especially considering the recent uplift in the market. It is to an excellent quality of workmanship which surpassed the expectations of the client team and the end user. The building's design is rational, durable and above all maintainable which will ensure that Mayfield School will continue to provide teaching excellence within the London Borough of Redbridge."
