Howard Civil Engineering's civils work package for the biggest free school in the country is now complete. The pupils of the Ruth Gorse Academy started their new 2016/17 academic year in the completed new building. This new Government-funded free school is located on previously derelict land between Black Bull Street and the New Dock development close to the Royal Armouries. It will eventually have 1,580 pupils and 150 staff, and is tipped to drive the regeneration of the south of the city centre.
Howard Civil Engineering, working for BAM Construction, carried out the substructure and superstructure RC works together with the foul and surface water drainage and external works package. As stated by MD Michael Howard, 'We are thrilled to be part of a project ultimately providing education for the children of Leeds.'
