Tilbury Douglas to lead construction of St John’s Catholic Primary School

  • 22nd May 2024

Tilbury Douglas has been appointed to lead the construction of the multi-million-pound St John’s Catholic Primary School project on behalf of All Saints Catholic Academy Trust, located in Rickmansworth.

Tilbury Douglas has worked closely with its supply chain partner, JF Hunt, in consultation with the HSE and with the Department for Education (DfE), to create a first-of-its-kind methodology to resolve the demolition of the existing school that is heavily impacted by both RAAC and asbestos.

The removal of the existing building will facilitate a new-build two-storey facility, which will be net zero carbon in operation and will offer more than 200 spaces for pupils aged four to 11.

Designed by Noviun Architects, works will start on site next month.

The sheme includes green features, such as natural ventilation, a bio-solar roof, and an extensive photovoltaics canopy.

Richard Boeg, managing director of building (South) at Tilbury Douglas, said: “Working collaboratively with all key project stakeholders, we have overcome a series of challenges that will stand us in good stead for delivering further projects across the DfE’s estate.

“We look forward to delivering this modern education facility.”
