Collinson completes £2.1m teaching centre for Morecambe Bay Academy

Collinson Construction has completed work on a new £2.1m arts and music centre for Morecambe Bay Academy.

The project saw us create a new 9,500 sq ft modular arts and music centre which included classrooms, office space and communal areas.

The method used meant most of the structure was factory made before being delivered to site in Morecambe and craned into position by our team.

It’s hoped the project can be a catalyst for further building projects on our doorstep in Lancashire in addition to our work across the UK.

Robert Duxbury, managing director at Collinson Construction, commented: “We’re proud of what we’ve achieved working in partnership with Morecambe Bay Academy. Our team has delivered a high-quality building in a short space of time, helping the academy to meet one if it’s key objectives of creating inspiring new teaching spaces.”

Angela Livesey, director of business and finance at Morecambe Bay Academy, added: “For us this project is the centrepiece of a much wider transformation project to create 21st century facilities at Morecambe Bay.

“The Arts and Music Centre has provided an exciting and innovative space for student creativity and one that will serve Morecambe children for many generations to come. We’re delighted with the finished product and the attention to detail that Collinson provided. It was a seamless project that was delivered incredibly quickly.”

Speaking about the potential for more new school and education projects in Lancashire and the North West, Robert adds: “Our first projects were in the sports and leisure and industrial sectors and we quickly became known nationally for this sector expertise. This part of our business continues to grow, but we’re also seeing growth locally too by getting involved in more traditional main contracting projects.

“We’ve invested heavily in our team to give us a wide range of construction expertise. We want to do more in Lancashire, both as modular construction experts, but also as a traditional contractor by building relationships with the county’s property community and professionals.”
