Willmott Dixon are constructing a new build single storey primary school on a green field site close to the expanding Tadpole Garden Village housing development in North Swindon.

The design concept is based on the use of clear span timber framed “Pods”, each with multi pitched roofs, connected by timber frame flat roofed “Links”. William Morris Primary School is based on 5 Pod / Link units in total.

The Pods are divided with partitions to form the internal teaching and circulation spaces. The Links each house W.C. facilities, separate electrical distribution boards and gas fired boilers which serve the Link itself and its adjacent Pod, thus ensuring that each Pod / Link unit is self-sufficient and can operate independently from the others.

Hard and soft surfaced play areas, access road, car parking and landscaping will be provided externally.

The project is due to complete in November 2019.

The project will be in week 21 of 53 during Open Doors Week.

The groundworks will be ongoing and the timber frame will be 50% complete.

Carpentry to the flat roofs will be underway and the installation of the felt and batten will be taking place on the pitched roofs.

Mechanical and electrical first fix will be taking place internally and we will be prepping to screed the floor.
