Cheadle Hulme SchoolCheadle Hulme School

As part of Project Alpha, Anvil installed "superload" piles to provide permanent support to the old front elevation façade.

The steel cased, bottom driven piles were anchored into the bedrock to support a reinforced concrete lattice work of beams.

The consultants were DAE Design of Buxworth and the Architect was Thomas Worthington design of Cheadle.

School ExperienceSchool Experience

This is a sector where specialist knowledge is often needed, not to mention work which is tightly scheduled and managed. Recent Anvilcontracts have included work at the Holy Rosary RC School, Oldham, and Broadbottom Primary School, where piling was undertaken for an extension, thereby saving the client money by amalgamating two jobs into one. Both these contracts were under the supervision of Main Contractor, Benjamin Armitage, whose Site Manager, Kevin Lynam, declared himself eminently satisfied with the project.

Another educational project was work carried out at Littlemoor School, Oldham, for Main Contractor F Parkinson, where Anvil’s site management and piling expertise was praised by Manager Darren Hessian.

Not a bad sort of Foundation Year!

Navigation Road SchoolBack To School!

This Local Authority (Trafford Borough Council) school, built in 1921, offered another project which had to be completed within a tight schedule to fit in with term time. Work involved stabilising the site after collapse of internal cloakroom walls due to the failure of the existing floor slab.

The supervising Structural Engineer on this occasion was Kevan Minors, who commented:

‘This was a tricky project which needed to be completed within a tight schedule. The site investigation proved that a ‘wash-out’ had taken place, creating a floor area void of about 115mm, and causing settlement of some 85mm over 3 metres. Doors were jamming and there was damage to internal walls. Anvil provided all the necessary information quickly and completed the work on time, including putting in a new floor and allowing the caretakers time to prepare the area before the new term’.

We must have done something right, because we subsequently received a congratulatory phone call from the Headmaster thanking us for completing the work on time!


Customer Comments

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to yourself and Mark + his team. From start to finish your service has been of a high level and professional. The price was competitive and your phone manner was personal but professional. A special mention to Mark who was in contact through the installation, being a manager myself i know its hard to come by good people within your work force who you know are going to do the job right and speak with people in the correct manner. Mark was great from start to finish, ringing up informing me the arrival time has changed to solving problems on site and being understanding with my Mrs who was the onsite for the duration but putting it bluntly didn't have a clue about the build. Having not met Mark in person, i believe the impression he made on myself and my Mrs was above and beyond what we expected. You should be proud to have someone like Mark in your work force. I wish you all the best in the future."- Aaron & Carly
