WORK has begun on a brand-new building at John Kyrle High School.

Modular construction specialist, Darwin Group has started on-site to deliver a brand-new three-storey science block, which covers 871 square metres and will house six specialist science laboratories.

Darwin Group has already delivered three other buildings for the school, with the latest project built on the former sports field.

After 30 years of delivering first-class education builds, Darwin Group’s in-house team is highly experienced in delivering buildings within a live school environment. Large parts of the project will be delivered off-site, and the team will work closely with the staff at John Kyrle throughout the delivery to ensure minimal disturbance to staff and pupils.

Charles Pierce, Managing Director of Darwin Group, said: "We are very excited to continue our relationship with John Kyrle school to deliver another modular build for the growing campus. It’s a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with the school to allow them to take on more pupils from the area, providing a state-of-the-art science facility. The team is really excited to be back on campus and look forward to bringing the designs to life."

Nigel Griffiths, Headteacher of John Kyrle School, said: "I am once again, delighted with the work undertaken by Darwin. While this was the school’s third major project with the company, it was the first run in partnership; in this instance with Herefordshire local authority.

"Representatives from Darwin worked closely with school leaders and local authority officers to ensure all parties had their requirements met. The school and the local authority look forward to the project being completed to the usual high quality associated with Darwin, on time and on budget."
