New teaching blocks for Ridgewood High School, Stourbridge

Interserve Group Limited was awarded a contract for £4.4m by the Department of Education to design and build a new teaching block and refurbish the Sports Hall at Ridgewood High School in Stourbridge, West Midlands.

The new H Block consists of a range of classrooms, a library, support and guidance area with several supporting rooms, a student reception, and several office spaces. The erecting of the building and interior fit out took nine months and was officially opened to the students in December 2019. The refurbishment of the Sports Hall was completed in October 2019 and offers improved access to staff changing areas and level access shower rooms.

The final stage of the project to demolish the old B and C Blocks which are now complete. There is a new entrance to Block A and small lobby extensions have been created to improve circulation and toilet accommodation.

“We were delighted to continue to actively provide Build and M&E Clerk of Works services on behalf of our client, Faithful and Gould, during the Covid-19 lockdown period which was a challenge given the circumstances. However, we were able to work within distancing guidelines to safely undertake the Site Inspections. The project has received its Practical Completion Certificate following the completion of the construction works.”
