Kier's sustainable build project making great progress at St.Julie's High School

Headteacher of St. Julie's Catholic High School delighted with progress

New build state of the art school well underway in Woolton


A headteacher overseeing a much-needed new £20m St. Julie's Catholic High School in Woolton of which 95% is being constructed by Kier on its existing site is reportedly delighted with progress to date.

The completed scheme which will include five times more public space than is being lost will open up a neighbouring private woodland for the first time too.

Tim Alderman said: "Since Kier started on site, progress has been good. They were granted access to the Religious Education block and Sports facilities as part of their various inspections. And when they came to start demolition it was done quickly with minimal noise or mess."

Ron Francis of Kier said:

‘We are very happy with the progress made to date and the foundations for the new St. Julies school are nearing completion. As part of our drive for a more sustainable building solution we have re-used a significant quantity of the demolition arisings to form the platform on which the new building will be established and have recycled the majority of the other demolition materials.

"Kier are committed to delivering every project with the least amount of disruption and maintain a methodical and strict regime to mitigate the nuisance caused by dust , light and noise pollution. We are also working closely with the school to ensure the pupils and staff are aware of the activities on site and to ensure any arising issues, of which there have been none, are dealt with amicably and immediately.’

Completion is expected in the autumn of 2017.

"We are very happy with the progress made to date and the foundations for the new St.Julie's school are nearing completion. "
