Over five years of construction work has culminated with the completion of the final phase at Sybil Andrews Academy in Bury St Edmunds.
The academy, which now has a capacity to accommodate 1,200 students, has been built over a number of stages, with the final stage starting early in 2019 to construct an additional MUGA area and two new teaching blocks adjacent to the main Heart building.
From the start of construction in 2015, Barnes has been the main contractor for the scheme, with Concertus project managing the build on behalf of the client, Suffolk County Council, and also providing a number of multi-disciplinary design services.
Cllr. Mary Evans, Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, Education & Skills at Suffolk County Council said.
“We are very pleased that this important project has been completed so successfully. As well as being a remarkable building in itself, Bury St Edmunds now has the secondary school capacity it needs to meet current and future demand for school places.”
