A new three storey building in Dartford, will be named Stone Lodge School, with construction carried out by BAM Construction. Completion is expected by early 2022, with initial processes including diverting public rights of way, moving wildlife and ecological investigations. The ambitious project will be a team effort between BAM, and sister companies BAM Services Engineering and BAM Design.
Award winning architects KSS have also been novated to BAM, to work on this project. They are responsible for major projects such as the Purfleet centre regeneration in Thurrock, and Maidstone School of Science and Technology. BAM’s construction director Mick Kelly said: “The design at Stone Lodge takes account of learning from our recently completed scheme, the School of Science & Technology, in Maidstone”. “That project was up-to-date evidence of how we go about our work. We have also got a highly experienced construction manager in Daniel Brenchley, who lives in Kent and has built many education buildings across the county.”
Daniel Brenchley said: “By bringing more of the work in-house we increase co-ordination and reduce risks, which helps us deliver the programme for the school and it enhances our ability to use digital techniques and find modular solutions. “BAM originally learned it had become successful in its competitive tender on the day lockdown was announced. So immediately we required an adjustment to this new way of working for our teams as we began to develop the design.”
Modular design is increasingly being integrated into some of the most ground breaking developments. It saves on time and money, while guaranteeing precise and accurate results. Modular design, is where many of the components of a structure are produced in a purpose built factory environment for later on-site assembly.
