Rugby Gets Going

Listed Building enabling works begin on site

Morgan Sindall have begun the initial phase of construction works on C Station, the listed former GPO radio transmitter building at Rugby, that will form the core of the new Houlton School in preparation for main works which are due to begin in early 2020.

We sought and obtained Listed Building Consent for works to allow an Enabling Works contract to be let in advance of the main application’s determination, to inform the main works construction details and scope, thus de-risking the main works programme. This includes demolition of the link block, fan cages, and ancillary structures; protection works and salvage; and strip-out of redundant fittings and services, lead-based paint and asbestos.
