Sutherland Primary

Temporary Classroom Solution



As part of an ongoing Framework Agreement, Wulfrun were appointed by the City of Stoke-on-Trent Council to provide a temporary classroom solution on the playing field of Sutherland Primary Academy, whilst the main school buildings were demolished and a new facility built. We had to overcome the presence on site of a large badger colony, which resulted in a scheme redesign and the imposition of restricted working practises during the construction phase.

Mace acted as Employers Agent, the project was a £2.31 million pound design and build.

The works consisted of the following.

  • The construction of an engineered ground foundation solution to provide a load-bearing platform
  • Temporary storm and foul water drainage solution including the construction of a foul water pumping station and storm water balancing pond
  • Provision of a temporary mains power solution ahead of the construction of a new substation and uprated incoming permanent mains
  • Supply, installation, fit out and ongoing hire of modular-build temporary classroom units, configured to provide teaching spaces for Reception through to Year 6, a library, practical rooms and a dedicated Dining/Canteen facility
  • Provision of access roads, ramps, hard and soft play areas


With enabling works commencing end of July 2016 and a non-negotiable requirement for the school to be fully functional by the end of the October half term, the project was delivered on time and we shall continue to provide an on-site maintenance service until such time as the Academy moves into its permanent facility in July 2018.
