Sheffield Schools

The Sheffield Schools Private Finance Initiative (PFI) comprised new and refurbished buildings at six senior & junior school sites in the Sheffield area.

  • Tapton School
  • King Edward VII Lower School
  • Fir Vale School
  • Owler Brook Nursery
  • Ecclesfield School
  • Mosborough Primary School

The schools comprised single and multi-storey blocks providing classrooms, laboratories, ADT facilities, kitchen and dining halls, sports halls and gymnasium. External works include roads, car parking, coach stations, drainage, all-weather pitches and multi-sports courts.

The multi-storey blocks comprised precast concrete frames and floors whilst the single storey blocks were in structural steelwork.

The PFI contract required Interserve to manage the schools for 25 years following hand-over, to include all functions such as security, school meals, and maintenance etc., other than the educational function of the schools.

All aspects of design related to the length of the maintenance contract with the main structural frames of the buildings having a design life of 60 years.
