Market Field School in Colchester is a school for children and young people between the ages of 5 and 16 who experience moderate learning difficulties. Due to increasing demand, they have begun an expansion programme in order to create a new first-floor extension to the east end of the building, providing four additional classrooms, toilet facilities, a group room replacing the existing one and a new storeroom for educational tools and equipment.

Assisting Barker Associates on the project, Pi Consult have provided the full MEP designs for the extension, including plans for the installation of air-conditioning systems throughout the building to enhance temperature comfort, a pupil priority which was highlighted by the Essex SEN provider.

With planning permission granted in August 2019, work on-site was able to commence in December, with an anticipated summer 2020 completion ready in time for the next academic year!

We are proud to be supporting this scheme and can’t wait to see the school get the new extra space they need.
