1st November 2010

Lengard are delighted to have been selected to carry out refurbishment and extension works at Gumboots Community Nursery, for the London Borough of Southwark.

The project will commence in November 2010 and includes the construction of a front and two side extensions on short bored piled foundations, together with alterations and refurbishment to the existing nursery building.

The new extensions are to be constructed in cross laminated timber that can form pre-finished buildings and meet the requirements for energy efficiency and sustainability, and is suited to this fast track project and modern methods of construction.

As part of our commitment to value engineering, we have already identified a potential for saving, which also benefits the environment, by altering the timber type used for the external cladding, from Canadian Cedar to European Larch, a more locally sourced durable softwood.

The project is valued at £750,000 and the duration of the project will be 25 weeks.
