Sea Mills Children’s Centre site progress
4 May 2017
5 years after completing the renovation and extension to Sea Mills Primary School, DKA and Skanska are back on site creating a new Children’s Centre alongside the school . The three classroom building for 2 and 3 year olds is a mixture of an existing 1927 school building and two new modular extensions at the rear. Following some partial demolition, foundations were prepared for the modular units which were built off site and craned into position over the Easter break. These extensions help bring the building up to modern standards for physical space, toilet facilities, access and support functions.
Now installed, they will be clad externally and receive internal finishes. The former classrooms on the front elevation have been converted into a variety of uses including a children’s kitchen, staff room and Family Support spaces.
The building also has two lettable training rooms for use by the wider community.
The centre is due for completion in August 2017.
