Sporting facilities completed for Withington Girls’ School
Posted on July 4th, 2018
Withington Girls’ School (WGS) in Fallowfield, Manchester is enjoying the new Sports and Fitness Centre which has been completed by John Turner Construction.
Displaying large aluminium sporting figures and stainless steel lettering on the external facade of the building, the two storey facility comprises a dedicated ground floor sports reception area, new changing rooms, lockers and PE office. A Mind and Body studio for dance, yoga, martial arts and other wellbeing activities occupies the first floor along with an extensive Fitness Suite.
WGS remained fully operational during the construction works with over 675 pupils plus staff and visitors attending the school. Our Site Manager provided site tours throughout the duration of the project and communicated with the school representative and staff on a daily basis creating excellent relationships. The school’s catering team even provided the John Turner site team with lunches during the cold winter months.
Sarah Haslam, Headmistress at Withington Girls’ School said: ‘we are delighted with our new sports facility, which is light and airy with some beautiful design features. The quality of the build and finishes is of a very high standard and we were impressed with the consideration shown by the Site Manager and his team throughout the project; it was a pleasure to work with them!’
