RGS The Grange improved access and parking

Royal Grammar School The Grange needed to extend and alter their vehicle and pedestrian access routes, during the summer holiday period. There was a tight deadline to meet so a smooth, well communicated project was essential.

The Grange preparatory school for the prestigious and historic Royal Grammar School, Worcester needed to build a new car park, change road access routes, extend the play area and have the whole installation well lit, in just 6 weeks.

The new car park, block paving and playground improvements were built by Heming Services Ltd (HSL) and the electrical supply and installation was then assigned to their sister company Ford Electrical Ltd (FEL).

The Royal Grammar School, Worcester is the 5th oldest school in the UK and the 6th oldest school in the world.  Working with such an historic institution carrying The Royal seal of approval, meant the Heming Group were as focused as ever to deliver on schedule with an impressive end result that would stand the test of time.

A major part of this project was the construction of a new car park including associated drainage. The lighting of the car park, including street columns and bollards was undertaken by FEL their sister company.

HSL then carried out the second phase which was block paving works.  Block paving to main access drive and roadways and to the crèche area.  The play area required extending, new footpaths, bark play area, rainbow picket fencing and finally fence lighting, again delivered by FEL.

The third phase was the overflow car park requiring knee high fencing around, an attractive feature demarking the overflow car park within the grass field.

Essential to the success of this project and it running to schedule, was the close working relationship of the two companies HSL and FEL,

“Projects like this show how our group of companies offer the client, peace of mind, great communication and value for money”

Said Peter Heming, HSL Director.

"I’m proud to have been offered the opportunity to work with one of Worcester’s and the country’s best schools and look forward to similar projects like this in the future”
