The vision for the schools was to create a new education and enterprise campus, comprising Richmond upon Thames College Free School, Clarendon SEN School and Newhouse Centre, located on Richmond College Campus. Harlequins (Rugby) and Haymarket (Publishing) are also stakeholders in the wider development.
The campus provides unparalleled opportunities for developing skills and pursuing employment through work experience, apprenticeships and ultimately, jobs. Though separate the schools share catering and activities facilities, with provision externally for outdoor dining areas, play equipment, sports pitches and outdoor reading areas.
Huntley Cartwright was appointed as project manager (quantity surveyor and employer’s agent) and works supervisor (clerk of works) under an NEC 3 Contract for the construction of a new secondary school.
The project was delivered on time and on budget. The works were procured under the SCAPE major works framework and the Principal Contractor was Willmott Dixon.
