Dining Hall

Withington Girls’ School

Withington Girls’ School is a leading independent day school for girls aged 7 to 18 in Fallowfield, Manchester. Founded in 1890, the school provides for over 700 pupils at junior, senior and sixth form stages.

Following on from our previous successful contract to build a new Sports Centre and Fitness Suite, John Turner Construction was awarded the contract to provide a new two storey dining hall and hospitality space. The new extension and refurbished adjoining areas provide a versatile space for dining, hospitality and functions, with a first storey viewing gallery of the sports fields. Two new kitchens, serving areas and modern seating help the school to provide a more relaxed and interactive experience for the pupils and staff. The new extension also provides a learning support centre, additional office space and new toilet facilities.

The school and facilities remained fully open during our construction activities, through careful planning and a co-operative approach, the operation of the school was not compromised by our works. Demolition work and the forming of new openings was carried out during the school holidays and material deliveries were made outside of normal school hours.

Our client’s responses

” John Turner has won a number of tenders at Edge Hill University and has been consistently successful in completing high quality projects, on programme and on budget. “

” I would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to your entire team who were responsible for delivering such a successful project. We would especially like to recognise the dedication and commitment your team gave the project which was completed with minimal disruption to our hospital functions. ”

” The project has been a real success and this is due to the professional and well organised manner in which John Turner’s staff conducted themselves. There was excellent communication with a priority for safeguarding the pupils and staff at all times. “

” It is extremely refreshing to know that the enthusiasm, professionalism, dedication and humour is still available in the right proportions to make things happen in the construction industry. What is most pleasing is that at all times, the requirements of the Client and Church of England Pensions Boards as the end-user was paramount. Collectively, we have achieved completion on time, a building within budget and in some areas exceeded the client’s expectations. “

” Just a line to express my thanks and appreciation of your sterling efforts to secure the completion of this project within the agreed programme. I am impressed by both the attitude and approach of your organisation. Thanks once again on behalf of my colleagues and the clinical staff with whom you developed a true spirit of co-operation under difficult circumstances. “
