Handover has taken place on the first phase of the £19m redevelopment of St Mary's College in Hull.
Capita is providing provide architecture and FF&E services on the project on behalf of the Esteem Local Education Partnership (LEP).
St Mary’s College, the highest performing faith school within Hull City Council's portfolio of secondary schools, is a 1,650 place Roman Catholic voluntary-aided school and sixth form college.
The first phase comprises two new buildings and the reorganisation and refurbishment of existing buildings. A new building facing Inglemire Lane gives the school a completely new public identity and comprises new learning facilities, science labs, a new LRC (learning resource centre), as well as a new 350- place VI Form College.
The second building is a new bespoke sports hall, with classrooms, teaching facilities in changing rooms and new outdoor facilities, including a 4G artificial turf pitch (suitable for rugby) and multi-use games area, which will strengthen the college’s already impressive sports offer.
The second phase involves the refurbishment of the existing LRC and theatre, and partial demolition of the original 1960s grammar school building to unlock space for a new 300-seat theatre with fly tower, plus new landscaped courtyards that will link together the various buildings and facilities across the site to form a consolidated campus.
The Esteem LEP - which is delivering the 17-school, £400m Hull BSF programme - is led by Hull City Council and comprises Morgan Sindall Investments Limited, Robertsons Capital Projects Limited and Hull-based Sewell Group plc.
