Science block undergoes full transformation

The facility improvement programmes currently being undertaken at the Sutton Community Academy in Sutton in Ashfield, serve to illustrate how intelligent and innovative design and refurbishment can have a direct, positive impact on safeguarding and student well-being in the education sector. Ian Williams has recently completed the second phase of works for the Academy Transformation Trust, delivered in partnership with Baily Garner: the full refurbishment of the Academy’s Science Block.


The works included demolition and strip out of the old facilities, then the installation of state-of-the-art teaching laboratories and classrooms.

Charlie Winstanley, Ian Williams Business Manager overseeing the project comments: “The refurbishment of the Sutton Academy’s Science Block was the first project we returned to after the first Lockdown, so not only were our teams returning from furlough, but we also had to set up a COVID-19 safe working environment and adjust to new safe working procedures, which included social distancing and PPE. Although the area we were working in was unoccupied, the wider Academy was being used by students, which put extra pressure on the new working restrictions. However, we’ve delivered a complete transformation and the customer is really happy with the results.”
