PROJECT UPDATE: Cherry Orchard Primary Academy, Ebbsfleet Garden City

We are making great progress at the site of the first Primary School to open in Ebbsfleet Garden City as you can see from these photos sent in by Site Supervisor Steve Kemp. We've been on site since the middle of February to install the windows, doors and curtain walling elements to the new building.

Cherry Orchard Primary Academy, which will open in September 2017, will be a 2-form entry school for students between the ages of 3 - 11. It will offer brand new facilities including a nursery and a small community centre for children with speech, communication and language needs. Adjacent to the Academy will be the Castle Hill Community Centre, a purpose-built space which will include a hall, foyer and kitchen space that can be hired for local events such as amateur dramatics, exhibitions or as a meeting space for specific community organisations.

Working alongside Kent based contractors W W Martin Ltd and project architect Lee Evans Architects, we have installed Dualframe 75 casement windows, Elegance 52 ST curtain walling, and Stormframe STII commercial double and single doors all from Sapa.
