Building a school during the pandemic
Ark Blake Academy is a brand new school in East Croydon. Opening its door to year 7 pupils in September 2020, it will grow each year and provide opportunities to children in the local area.
Working with Wates, we provided fire protection for the new building, completed in the summer of 2020.
We undertook the application of intumescent paint along with fire stoppers. This project took place during the COVID-19 pandemic, which meant that it was imperative we adhered to the necessary safety and social distancing measures at all times while onsite.
Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, we were able to complete the works on time for the school to be opened as planned in the autumn. All works were completed to a high standard, attesting to the professionalism of our experts.
