Future Generations Community Super School
On May 1st 2019, the state-of-the-art £44 million community super school at Tonyrefail opened its doors. It’s a flagship project for Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT) Borough Council and an exemplar of the ‘all through’ learning environments being delivered by Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools’ Programme.
The two new buildings and refurbished existing Grade 11. Victorian building, provide a co-location for 360 primary and nursery pupils and 1,190 secondary and sixth form pupils.
A project of this scope and scale demanded sector expertise in construction and infrastructure. RCT therefore awarded the contact to Morgan Sindall, a UK company with proven excellence of design and build in education, who are delivering a number of ground-breaking education projects across south Wales.
At Shufflebottom, we were therefore delighted to be contracted by Morgan Sindall to supply the steel work for this prestigious project. Known for our strength in supplying steel work and steel-framed buildings to industrial, commercial and agricultural customers, we were a natural fit to supply the inner strength that this development relied on.
Numbers count. And we’re proud to say that we supplied 55 tonnes of hot rolled steel and 12 tonnes of cold rolled steel for the primary and nursery school, and a huge 629 tonnes of hot rolled steel for the secondary school and sixth form. Proud too, of the seamless collaboration with Morgan Sindall in helping to transform community education in Tonyrefail now, and for future generations.
“We were very pleased to be involved with Morgan Sindall on this job. There was a great site team on the project.”
