A leading joinery manufacturer has completed work to build a new classroom for Little Stanion Primary School in Corby.
The project by Scotts of Thrapston took seven weeks to complete. The contemporary, carbon efficient timber-framed building has capacity for 30 pupils and includes a lobby and toilet. It was constructed for a six figure sum.
Jackie Sandy, school business manager for Little Stanion Primary School, said: “Work began at the end of the summer term and was completed ahead of schedule for when the pupils arrived back in September. There was very little disruption to the school throughout the construction programme and we highly commend the builders.
“Both the teaching staff and children are delighted with the finished building. It gives us a bright new space that helps us provide the very best education in the community.”

Philip Goldstone, commercial manager for Scotts of Thrapston, said: “Schools are increasingly looking for a one stop shop service as construction in the education sector continues to rise. We take on the entire project and offer schools a quick, cost effective and high quality permanent solution to increase space demand.
“Our education buildings provide the ideal learning environment in which children can thrive and achieve their full potential.
“Using our architecture skills in-house we gave careful consideration to the specification of the Little Stanion building from every angle. We took into account every element of the building design including light, ventilation, thermal comfort and acoustics. Aesthetically, the building blends in with the natural features of the environment.
“As the majority of our business is word of mouth the quality, customer satisfaction and end user agreement is of paramount importance to us. It is great to hear that both the pupils and teaching staff feel comfortable in their new environment.”
