East Anglian Galvanizing has been involved in a multi-million pound construction project which has seen the first new secondary school built in Cambridgeshire for the past 30 years.
The plant partnered with March-based SDM Fabrication Limited to provide its specialist hot-dip galvanizing treatment to nearly 50 tonnes of structural steel as part of the £20 million construction of Cambourne Secondary School.
The new state-of-the-art academy, which will cater for 750 students, is the first secondary school to be built in the area for three decades, and was commissioned to accommodate the area’s increasing number of students. The two-storey building features a range of modern facilities including sports and performance halls, as well as technology rooms and drama studios.
Selwyn Parrish, Commercial Manager at East Anglian Galvanizing, explained: “We are delighted to have assisted on a project in our own community that will provide new and exciting educational opportunities for so many local students. It’s been a pleasure working with long-time client, SDM Fabrication Limited, once again on this project, and we look forward to partnering again in the future.”
Richard Melton, Director of SDM Fabrication Limited, said: “Once again the team at East Anglian Galvanizing has risen to the challenge in assisting SDM Fabrication Limited with the delivery of this project, and continue to provide us with the confidence to promote our mutual capabilities for future works.”
