HSP were commissioned by Shepherd Construction to advise on the construction of a proposed school in Telford Valued at £27 million. The project involved the construction of a new building to provide accommodation for the Telford Co-Operative Academy.
The existing building was constructed on local authority owned land, incorporating grassed pitches, a running track, a leisure centre, and a tennis centre.
HSP advised on the new building to comprise of a hot rolled steel frame, supporting cast in-situ concrete composite floor slabs and cold rolled purlins which were used to support the built up roof system. HSP also advised for the Floor slabs to be connected to beams by a series of thru-deck welded studs, with the beams being designed compositely with the slab.
With HSP’s input, the Telford Co-operative Academy was completed on time and to budget.
