West Rolleston School

Client West Rolleston School
Dates January 2015 – December 2015


As the Main Contractor for all design and build phases of this project, our remit was to provide planning and infrastructure for 750 students including; teaching spaces, an administration area, library, resource areas, hall and special education units, including a versatile outdoor learning and play space.



Southbase delivered a full design and build service, based on room data sheets and Ministry design protocols. It was crucial that the building met the needs and standards of the various end-user groups so our people worked closely with multiple groups, extracting the necessary information and feedback to ensure the end result was fit for purpose.  One focus was creating open-plan learning spaces that were large, versatile and in bright, welcoming colours, in order to deliver an effective learning environment.


Our staged interactive approach taken with the Ministry during the design phases of the project, meant we were able to reach an agreement on the GMP.


Collaborating with a partner fabrication company, Concision we built a free spanning structure, utilising exterior componentry.


Following Southbase policies, the site maintained a recycling protocol throughout the project to maximise sustainability of the project.
