Ysgol Bae Baglan School, Port Talbot
The new-build 122,600 sq ft building marks the single largest investment in school infrastructure in the history of the Neath Port Talbot council. Ysgol Bae Baglan has capacity for 1,500 pupils aged three to 16 years, boasting the latest technology to revolutionise teacher-student interaction. Digital teaching walls with responsive surfaces and AV integration feature in classrooms, with technology cascading throughout the school from cashless catering to advanced theatrical lighting systems.
From initial design engagement in 2014 to project handover in August 2016, Havelock completed the full design, manufacture, procurement and installation of furniture for the Welsh super-school. The standout project was delivered on time, in full and on budget by Havelock - ahead of the contracting programme - leading the way for onsite subcontractors.
