Maes Ebbw School
Our services included the below
The school, the only dedicated school for youngsters with special needs in Newport, was granted an extension to build seven more classrooms. The £3.5 million development was funded by the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools programme.
We designed the project from Stage 4A (BIM) and were delighted when it was shortlisted for a CEW (Construction Excellence Wales) Award following completion.
The proposal was to extend Maes Ebbw School, an existing purpose-built community-maintained special school that serves the whole of the city and supports the provision of education for children aged from 3 years to 19 years whose statement of Special Educational Needs requires specialist provision.
Maes Ebbw School offers a well-resourced environment, but it was over-subscribed and the number of pupils on roll exceeded the measured capacity of the school. The school site had sufficient and appropriate space for the construction of seven additional classrooms and a sensory garden.
This, along with the associated ancillary services, facilitated an increase in whole school capacity from 100 to 150.
We were proud to be a part of this very special project that will make such an importance different to so many individuals in the area.
