Scotts of Thrapston is busy constructing a number of timber-framed buildings which have been specifically designed for learning, living and leisure environments.

Working alongside Broadwater Management, Scotts of Thrapston has architecturally designed and manufactured an innovative timber building for Croughton All Saints CE Primary School in Northamptonshire.  The building has just been handed over for the Key Stage 2 children to occupy this summer term.

This wonderful new building consists of two classrooms, lobby and cloakroom area with associated toilet and storage facilities.

The construction of a new multi-use Young Person’s Centre in Lavenham, Suffolk is well underway and the main structure of the building is already taking shape.

When finished the carbon efficient timber-framed building will have capacity for 48 pupils and will include a bright and spacious purpose-built play space, staff room, office space and a separate ‘quiet room’ to support children with special education needs.  A large outdoor play area is also being created using natural resources to enhance the children’s learning and development.

Construction work on a new community centre at Highfield Tower in Collier Row, Havering, started earlier this year with the demolition of the original centre.

The new Scotts building is progressing well and is due for completion this summer.  It will include a large hall for events alongside a kitchen, toilets and an office. The building will be used by local organisations and will be fully accessible for people with disabilities.

Deputy Leader of Havering Council and Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Damian White, said: “The pre-fabricated design of this centre means we can build quickly with the construction work.  It is good to see work underway and we are looking forward to this eco-friendly community centre being put to good use by local residents and community groups.”
