Opened in 1952, Farley Junior School is a friendly, local community school with a focus on inspiring high achievement as well as creating a family environment in which all students can excel and feel confident.

The works undertaken were broken up into three separate sections: a staffroom extension; an extension to four existing classrooms; and a modern side extension to house four new classrooms. The new classrooms were designed to have interactive white boards, mood lighting and external canopy areas linked to the classrooms in order to bring the outside environment into the classroom.  We worked closely with Luton Borough Council to ensure each room was completed and handed over for the start of the new school year.

The site was live for the majority of the works therefore careful thought was given to the Traffic Management Plan due to the existing car park area being adjacent to the main school buildings. This area required stringent Traffic Management and access was restricted and monitored directly by the site manager. A traffic marshall was also on site throughout the course of the work to ensure all deliveries were escorted through the school yard to the site compound.
