Thurston Group Limited

Thurston Group has delivered a high-quality, modular nursery building for Dunn Street Primary School in South Tyneside. The bespoke building’s exterior features both render and cedar cladding, with a traditional style pitched roof and bright red tiles. A BBA certificate provides assurance that the facility has a minimum design life of 60 years.
To keep disruption to school activities to a minimum, 90% of the work took place offsite. With installation and delivery during the school holidays. Any minimal works were carried out during term-time under a carefully planned out programme. Whilst working to tight timescales, we handed the new building over in time for the start of the new term.
The project was closely monitored by the Project Manager, Site Supervisor and the sub-contractor supervisors on site. Enabling Thurston’s to closely manage the key works and, where delays were identified, take all necessary actions ensuring the building was handed over on time.
South Tyneside Council was so pleased with the new childcare facility that Thurston Group has since manufactured and installed a further extension to Dunn Street Primary School. Adding a larger reception, two additional classrooms along with a new staff room, an additional office and storage space.
