Kier wins £25m school building contract

The new school building will re-use Victorian stone from the old caretaker’s house

Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council has picked Kier as main contractor for the Hawthorn All-Through School project, which will create new facilities for Heol y Celyn English Medium Primary, Hawthorn Primary and Hawthorn High schools.

Three of the school’s existing buildings will be demolished to make way for a new teaching block. One of these buildings is the old caretaker’s house, with stone from the Victorian building to be re-used in the new structure.

The new school will have 27 classrooms, a staff room, offices, reception area, therapy room, library, ICT suite, meeting rooms, music rooms and two new multi-use games areas – in addition to the existing one and current all-weather pitch.

The school has been designed to achieve net zero carbon in operation by the use of air source heat pumps and photovoltaic panels, bolstered by a commitment to purchase only renewable electricity from its energy supplier.

Procured through the SEWSCAP framework, work is expected to be completed in 2025.

Kier regional director Jason Taylor said: “This project presents a unique opportunity to provide not one but three schools with state-of-the-art facilities which will be a significant asset to the community of Pontypridd for generations to come.

“With the recently completed Ffynnon Taf Primary School just 10 minutes down the road using a nearby hot spring to heat its classrooms, this project further demonstrates our commitment to providing sustainable buildings in south Wales.”

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
