Hans Price Academy
|Client||Willmot Dixon Construction|
|Duration||2012 to 2013|
|Services||Full Civil and Structural Design|
This project was won through the Academies Framework, in competition, and required JDL to design very cost effective engineering solutions to maximise the budget available for educational benefit. We were approached by Willmott Dixon to join their team from the expression of interest stage and stayed with them as we won through the various stages.
The programme on all Academy projects is very compressed with very little time from award of contract to start on site and this was no exception. The project involves both in-situ concrete flat slabs and steel framed buildings with piled foundations. We have also fully designed the extensive external drainage and hard paved areas. We also successfully completed detailed consultations with the EA over flooding as the site is within a zone 3 flood area.
