Another significant milestone has been passed on the route to our new, permanent building at St Andrew the Apostle Greek Orthodox School with the appointment of our building contractor.
Bowmer and Kirkland (B&K) has been appointed by the Department for Education and is commencing work on the final design to be followed by construction beginning in 2021. The construction team including the project architect is visiting site this week to start working with us on finalising plans. This process will continue with a series of focussed meetings in the New Year.
The appointment of B&K builds on our existing, strong working relationship with them; B&K is currently building the permanent site for another Trust school, Turing House, in Whitton in the London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames.
Newly appointed Headteacher Mrs Indira Warwick said: “In these times of uncertainty, it is a relief to know that our state-of-the art new building is on its way and is in such trustworthy hands. We look forward to sharing further details with the community as we move ahead with this exciting project.”
Her views were echoed by the school’s Chair of Governors, Mrs Mary Karaolis OBE: “Having B&K appointed to this project is the best Christmas present the school could have wished for.”
The school is looking forward to sharing progress of any next steps and the detailed plans as they are developed and implemented.
