On Friday the 25th September we held a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. There were plenty of homemade cakes on offer, along with tea and coffee. We would like to thank the staff from John Clegg & Co and Rectory Homes for stopping by and helping us raise an amazing £100 and of course eat the cake.
Ivel Valley is an Area Special School for children of all ages with complex learning needs. Located on two different sites in Biggleswade, the school has a number of pupils with sensory and physical difficulties, and also some students and young people on the autistic spectrum.
A project to improve the secondary site reception, administration and visitor areas has just been completed. We developed designs for a 75m2 single storey extension and integrated the new rooms into the existing school and reception areas. Facilities now include larger offices, a consulting room for visiting professionals and an improved reception area. PCMS Design carried out the construction management, liaising regularly with the building contractor and key stakeholders at the school including governors and staff.
Headteacher Julie Mudd said: “I am very pleased with our new administration block, and it’s transformed the areas in which we greet parents and other visitors. Our admin staff now have a pleasant area in which to work, and the pupils have responded well to the improved space with carefully considered colour scheme and finishes. Everything was carried out on time and with the minimum of fuss.”
Katy joins us following four years of studying interior design and architecture at Sheffield Hallam University. Also during that time, she gained work experience at a top Oxford architectural firm, working on a range of health care and public sector projects.
Katy is looking forward to gaining an in-depth knowledge of construction management, and playing a key role in developing schemes from project briefing through to completion.
“I am delighted to be joining PCMS Design and very much look forward to meeting with clients in the coming months and years. I have a passion for design and enjoy creating spaces which meet the needs of the client.”
