On a sunny afternoon in November LIFE Build’s site at The Manor Preparatory School in Abingdon, Oxfordshire opened it’s doors for a preview of the new accommodation currently being constructed. Around 30 staff and governors enjoyed a tour of the new teaching block before the chair of the schools premises committee, Scott Harkness, laid the last block at the projects topping out ceremony. Scott explained that, given the location of the new building in the heart of the school, one of their main concerns had been one of noise and disruption and he congratulated the LIFE Build team on how well this had been managed. The £1m project to provide new teaching facilities for the middle years is due for completion in the new year.
