Bourne Grammar School CIF bid – 2016

Grayling Thomas were appointed to look at feasibility options for the school site for new classroom accommodation for the school to accommodate its expanding numbers. A number of sites were considered and the most suitable option was a new stand-alone building situated adjacent to the existing school blocks on a disused part of the site. This gave the school the option of having a building constructed entirely separately from the main school campus, therefore limiting any disruption to pupils and staff for the duration of the build.
