Delivered within proximity to a live school environment, Tilbury Douglas have worked closely with stakeholders to ensure a safe and smooth build process.

Michael Woods, Project Manager for the DfE, commented:

“Thanks to all the Tilbury Douglas team for their hard work and efforts to deliver the main school building in readiness for school occupation. Despite all the challenges within the industry’s supply chain and the continued impact of COVID the team managed to handover a building that was impressively high in standard – well done to you all.”

Simon Butler, Regional Managing Director of Building – Midlands at Tilbury Douglas, said:

“Lower Farm is one of several DfE school projects that we have handed over this summer. From lessons learned on previous projects, we identified a number of subtle changes to the design to enhance educational outcomes and comply with the latest DfE guidelines. We are very proud of the completed project!”
