North Wales Leading M&E Company Appointed for Super School Development in Holywell

ICR announces significant appointment to work on the £30 million Flintshire Super School. ICR are very proud to have secured the high value Electrical package on the largest construction project Holywell Town is likely to ever experience.  Appointed by the lead contractor, the new school houses over 900 students (including ICR employee’s children) and is the first School to be built to this specification in the Wales 21st Century School programme that merges the old primary and secondary schools together in one high tech facility. This is a brand new approach and design for buildings of education.

Design

This high tech design is a stark contrast to the usual 60’s styled secondary schools in Flintshire due to combining a three-storey secondary school with a single storey primary school, and both Schools are housed within two beautifully designed elliptical-shaped zones.

Construction started back in November 2015 and the School was completed on time ready for the new term in Sept 2016. A vast amount of concealed wires, internal lights and outside flood light was installed ready for the new school term The installation needed to be fast paced and high quality, there could be no slippage of time or standard as the School needed to open, especially as the old schools where either sold off or demolished.

According to Rob Douglass ICR Project Managers ‘the whole install was very well organised by the principle contractor, the supply chain process and the project management was tight and well executed which increased our job efficiency.  The architectural design of the building put our skills to the test due to so many lights at such a height and at strange angles. But when all the lights switched on in the Atrium in it looked fantastic. I particularly liked the new ‘tecky’ black boards, all touch screens for the teachers to write on with a virtual piece of chalk .’
