YMD Boon successfully secured funding through EFA for the remodelling and major extension to Gaddesby Academy. The scheme, which comprised of four new classrooms, a production kitchen, a new hall, food and tech facility, toilets and ancillary accommodation plus remodelling of the existing admin area, not only allowed more children to be educated in this Ofsted outstanding rated school, but also significantly improved the quality of this learning environment.
The contemporary extension wrapped around the rear of the existing building facing the playing field and maximised the views and safe access from classrooms to the recreational areas. The scheme was finished to a high standard and was delivered early and on budget.
Since the delivery of this scheme, we have successfully secured an additional round of funding to provide a mezzanine level to the school, which will introduce a new staff area and meeting room.
In addition, YMD Boon also provides occupational health and safety and reactive and planned maintenance services to Gaddesby Academy.
