MAC Construction Consultants help Yorkshire School expand its footprint

Building work on an ambitious, £2.5m extension to Birkenshaw’s BBG Academy has completed – allowing the secondary school to improve its teaching facilities to better meet the needs of the local community.

In a build project managed by leading construction consultancy MAC, the new facilities include 12 new classrooms for a range of subjects, an extended dining area, changing facilities and additional external areas which will provide improved conditions and an overall increased capacity for students.

Specialist Education Construction Consultants MAC worked closely with the Trust to help them secure funding from the Education and Skills Funding Agency for the project and to oversee its construction in a cost-effective and quick timeframe.

The firm were appointed as contract administrators, quantity surveyors and principal construction design managers.

Alex Laycock, Director at MAC commented: “This has been a hugely successful project and we are delighted to have been able to support Rodillian and the team at BBG to deliver on its ambitions of expansion and improvement within the restraints of its budget.

“In addition to this, the scheme was delivered by a former pupil of the school, Jack Crabtree, who provided Project Management from inception to completion.

“We have a very effective UK supply chain to ensure that projects can be delivered quickly and cost effectively benefitting our public sector clients -and on this occasion, that led to significant cost savings.”
