The new Malinslee Primary School, built on previously disused allotments and public open space, amalgamates 3 former schools, all of which remained operational adjacent to the site during construction. The old buildings were then demolished and the areas levelled to form sports fields and to allow residential re-development.
Forming the first phase of a total re-development of the Malinslee local centre, the scheme also incorporates two nursery schools, a children’s centre and a community centre.
The 18 classroom primary school for Telford & Wrekin Council provides vibrant and safe education facilities using sustainable materials and environmentally conscious building technologies.
Miller Construction played an active role in the school throughout the construction process - Year 4 pupils were offered a practical construction module and the site agent acted as an ongoing mentor to a group with behavioural difficulties. Construction kits were provided for pupils’ use and assistance was given in transporting an outing group to a local garden centre. Around the site, areas were constructed for pupils to observe work progress.
