The President Kennedy School in Coventry is committed to improving the life chances of all its students, and is proud of its ‘no barriers’ approach, which allows students to flourish academically.
With the number of potential students in the area expected to continue growing, Coventry City Council and The Futures Trust – the multi-academy trust to which the school belongs – decided to invest in a new, dedicated building for post-16 education on the site.
The contract for the build was awarded to BAM in late 2020, at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. The 38-week construction programme brought with it some unprecedented challenges: not least, remote collaboration with a new client.
But the new way of working was embraced by the client team and BAM alike, with everyone involve going the extra mile to deliver for the students. BAM adapted its on and off-site processes to ensure safe and successful delivery, on time for the new school year.
