Vinci completes work on Sheffield school project in UK

Vinci Construction UK Limited has completed construction work on The City School, a new business and enterprise college in Sheffield, UK.

The new school has been designed to accommodate 1,200 pupils aged between 11 years and 16 years. The scope of work involves construction of a new school block and link-way, refurbishment of the sports hall and existing school blocks. The company has also completed the hard and soft landscaping for the new school.

The work on the £21.5million ($32.01 million) design and build contract was staged in four phases and was completed in a timeframe of two and a half years. The project has incorporated a host of sustainable elements, such as use of thermal modelling techniques in new and refurbished areas to maximise cooling through natural ventilation.

The building was designed to maximize its natural light exploitation capabilities, thereby making it more energy efficient facility and reducing its lifecycle costs. The project has achieved BREEAM Very Good rating.
