Maths Block at Chellaston Academy

Maths Block & Refectory at Chellaston Academy, Derby

A Design & Build project

This project, which was carried out in 2 phases, comprised the design and construction of a new 2 storey maths classroom block with a refectory to part of the ground floor.

The contract value was £2.354m - duration 66 working weeks.

Works carried out…

As well as the classroom block and refectory, A&S Enterprises also carried out site works. These included the construction of access roads and car parking, and installing drainage.

Other works comprised external services, lightings, minor landscaping and the demolition of the existing maths block.

Phase 1

Phase 1 works included the diversion of sewer and services, and the provision of new hard-standings, and access requirements.

The construction of approximately two thirds of the new Maths Block comprised, in brief, the following:

  • foundations, structural steel, metal deck and in-situ slab
  • pre-cast concrete stairs, masonry cavity walls, curtain walls and external doors
  • roof finishes, lift installation, partitioning and suspended ceilings
  • floor and wall finishes, fixtures and fittings
  • M&E installations and external works.

Phase 2

Phase 2 comprised the demolition of the existing Maths Block and the construction of the final third of the new Maths Block (as in Phase1).

We carried out site works to include drainage, access roads, car parking, external services and lighting.


The project was a success.

It is a practical, purposeful, robust working area for the staff and students of Chellaston Academy.
