Springfield Proves a Class Act at Newham College

Springfield Mobile has completed its largest ever order worth over £750 000 to design, build and install modular classrooms at Newham 6th Form College (NewVIc) in London.

Twelve classrooms and washroom facilities were installed as a two storey block for the college during term time allowing NewVIc to cater for increasing numbers of students in the area which had created considerable pressure on the available college resources.

The project was completed in just six weeks from laying the foundations to handing over the finished building ready for teaching.

David Snazel who oversaw the project for Newham College says, “Our resources were getting terribly stretched and we needed a solution that was fast and affordable.  We invited a number of suppliers to tender for the contract and were really surprised by how much Springfield differentiated itself from the competition in terms of quality and value. That differentiation was reflected in the finished product being delivered on time and within budget.”  

Springfield’s team overcame all the issues presented by the site such as routing electrical power from a supply over 100 metres away and managing access for cranes with no disruption to teaching during the construction of the 450 square metre steel framed building, which was finished in sustainable larch panelling. 

Lyndsey Duggan, managing director of Springfield adds, “This has been a landmark project for us since it shows we can compete and win major contracts anywhere in the UK.   We are becoming recognised as an important supplier across the educational sector and that’s down to careful control over manufacturing and attention to detail in project management.”
