The project will see the construction of a new designed-for-purpose sixth form block at Rutlish School, Merton Park; Ricards Lodge High School, Wimbledon; Bishopsford Art College School, Morden and Raynes Park High School, Raynes Park.

Trench Farrow is leading the project on behalf of the London Borough of Merton. WYG is also providing architecture, cost management, engineering and other specialist services.

The new blocks will attract local students to stay in the borough rather than travelling miles to sixth form facilities in other boroughs. The communities will also benefit from potential retention of future income by providing a locally sustainable economy, through an educated and trained, locally based, skilled work force.

Jonathan Skelton, regional director at WYG Management, said: “Our specialist and creative consultants work with clients to identify, define and deliver innovative solutions. For this project we are managing design and construction of four large sixth form blocks, each consisting of two-storey bespoke modular systems.

“Each block is between 1000m2 and 1600m2 in size. All four projects are on site simultaneously, at different stages; two sites already have modules in place, third and fourth due in mid March and April.”
