Our Approach

For the Mayfield School project, our strategy centered on strong collaboration and clear communication with the school’s leadership and TDA. This approach was crucial in navigating the challenges of construction within an active school environment and minimising disruption.

This straightforward and inclusive approach ensured that all stakeholders were consistently informed and involved, enabling the successful delivery of the new facilities and positively impacting the educational resources at Mayfield School.

Community impact

The new wing now boasts facilities that significantly enhance the educational experiences of its students. These include group session rooms, a training room, and additional storage areas, all designed to support specialized educational programs. This expansion not only caters to the current needs of the students but also accommodates future growth, ensuring long-term benefits to the community and the educational landscape in Torquay.

We also engaged with the local community, particularly emphasising educational outreach. Our team facilitated class assemblies and offered site tours during STEM week, which were aimed at students from nearby Paignton. This initiative helped local students gain insights into the construction industry.

Client Testimonial

”We are pleased to announce that the new ‘wing’ at Mayfield is complete and all of the associated works in the older part of the school are being used to great effect to benefit the education of our pupils. We were fortunate to have built a genuine and open relationship with the Nevada team, and TDA, and this stood us in great stead to overcome the challenges we faced ‘living in a building site’ over the year.

We are beginning to see the impact of the new spaces across the school which for our pupils will lead to progress in their Education, Health and Care Plan outcomes. Just in the first few weeks of the Autumn term we are seeing the positive impact of these improvements to the site for our pupils and staff.”
