Osborne starts work on schools in Ealing

Osborne has started building work on two schools in Ealing, West London. Both schools are on one site, and will be fully refurbished allowing students to benefit from brand new facilities.

Horsenden Primary Schools’ will be a two storey steel frame, with brick facade and velfac windows and louvers. Internally, there will be eight new classrooms, group rooms, staff area and new toilets on both floors along with a new dining / sports hall.

Mandeville School, which is a school for children with special needs, is also a new two storey structure. Whilst it has the same external look as Horsenden Primary School, its interior is significantly different. The new block will be created for autistic children and will contain nine specialist class rooms, a music room, dining hall and servery, adventure room and sensory rooms, as well as staff facilities, a library and hygiene rooms to all areas.

Externally, Osborne will undertake an extensive landscape programme which will provide lots of soft play areas and play equipment.

On setting up site, Osborne took the time to make the hoardings look like a castle wall, to make the site more visually appealing to the young service users. The children had the opportunity to watch some of the piling machines at work, at the beginning of the project.

Jason Barnes, Osborne Project Manager said: “Osborne are excited to be starting these refurbishment works which will provide new facilities and make a difference to the school lives of children.”
