Armsons Barlow has announced it has completed work on the extension and refurbishment of a Derbyshire school.

Working alongside a team which included architects YMD Boon, the firm of project managers, construction cost consultants and building surveyors have completed the work at Belper School and Sixth Form Centre.

Work on the project included the construction of a first-floor extension over the existing sixth form centre and alterations to the ground floor space to provide additional teaching facilities for the school.

The new extension will provide a range of new teaching facilities for staff and students.

A second storey has been added to the original sixth form centre, with the installation of a new steel frame along with new foundations, structural alterations, new roofing and flooring, new windows and the installation of timber rain screen cladding. The ground floor layout has also been altered.

Belper School is the main secondary school in the Belper area and caters for more than 1,200 students.

The additional space will enable it to open its doors to more students.

Sally Walters, director of Armsons Barlow, said: “The addition of a second storey to the building will create more high-quality teaching and recreational space for staff and students.

“We’re pleased to see construction work on Belper School and Sixth Form Centre completed.”

Over the past 50 years, Armsons Barlow has been involved in many award-winning schemes, including transforming the historic Roundhouse on Pride Park into a £51 million engineering, technology, and construction campus for Derby College Group.

Other projects include the 400 Hall, a state-of-the-art flexible performance theatre for Repton School.
