Harrow Green Case Studies - North Leamington School

handshake vectorThe Client:

Paper, posters, curtains and other potentially flammable material that might create a fire risk needed to be disposed of responsibly.

Throughout the project provision had to made for safe working during school hours, scheduling the move around breaks and lunch periods, and co-ordinating a timetable that would accommodate both access to the old school for packing, and the readiness of the new school to accept deliveries.

target vectorThe Project:

  • The first step is to find a home for redundant furniture and equipment, either through resale or by working with a distribution partner.
  • Unsuitable furniture was broken up for recycling. Metalwork was recycled locally using a specialist metal recycling company. Wood was recycled for use in panel-board manufacture, and melamine-facing board reprocessed for a variety of uses, including bio-fuel for power stations.

building vectorThe Outcome:

  • The bulk of the reusable furniture – three articulated truck loads – went to Green-Works, the social enterprise organisation that provides low-cost sources of furniture to businesses, charities, community groups and schools in the developing world.

The opening of the new North Leamington School fulfilled a long-held vision to create an inspiring context for 21st-Century learning on a single site. Designed like a university campus, with separate buildings for each faculty, the £32 million new school incorporates a mass of environmentally-friendly features and state-of-the-art facilities.

Harrow Green planned the relocation of essential furniture, lab equipment, the gym, the music department, books, files, stationery and teaching materials. It was a substantial move, calling for more than 1,300 reusable crates and boxes. Three hundred sheets of protective boards were used to prevent damage to the new school interiors and walkways.

Quotation markClient Feedback:

I was struck by the totally professional but personal way Harrow Green managed this project. There was never a delay in responding to a phone call for extra resources or answering a query no matter what time of day or even weekend.
