Kingsmead School, Wiveliscombe, Somerset
New seven laboratory science building

MRA swiftly prepared a planning application as part of the ACMF bid preparation. The funding allocation of £1.7m was made in June 2012. In July planning approval was granted. In August the builders prepared the site and by October the steel frame was being craned in place. The key to this remarkably speedy progress is close collaboration between the team designing and constructing the building and the school management.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) ensures that all elements fit together before they come to site. MRA’s 3D model controls the design with consultants adding to the BIM process.

Construction is on target to hand over the new science labs at the end of April 2013.
