Kier Southern is rebuilding Whitmore High in Harrow in a £40 million project for Harrow Council.
The project team has finished driving nearly 600 piles about 20 m into the local clay, and work is now progressing on creating the new structures - a trio of flowing, curved blocks enclosing a central open space.
The new Whitmore High, Harrow’s first project to attract Government funding under Building Schools for the Future, is set for handover late next year. At that point about 1,200 co-ed students, currently using a double-storey complex of portable cabins, will move in.
The new school, the result of extensive consultations with parents, students, staff and the local community, is being built on the same ground as the one it is replacing.
