Northumberland’s Iconic Ponteland Schools and Leisure Development

Appointed by Northumberland County Council, we are providing Building Clerks of Works services for the new-build development in Ponteland, Northumberland throughout the duration of the c.£43m project.

Comprising of a new build primary school, secondary school and leisure centre, the project forms part of one of the county council’s largest capital programmes. The project partners include Northumberland County Council, Active Northumberland, Ponteland Primary School and Ponteland High School with Northumberland County Council funding the scheme.

Once completed in 2020, the state-of-the-art development will feature a 1,600-pupil secondary school, a 420-pupil primary school, a 52-place nursery, a leisure centre including six lane swimming pool, library and a café. In addition, the leisure centre, which will be managed by Active Northumberland, will feature a spa, gym, soft play and a clip’n’climb activity zone.

“We have inspected the construction on many schools, colleges , universities and UTC’s throughout the UK in addition to high-profile leisure centre and pool projects, so we are delighted to be providing independent inspections on this iconic project in Northumberland which will benefit students and citizens in the surrounding areas. Our Inspector has integrated well on-site and is an integral part of delivering the quality plan set by the client.”
