School furniture manufactured for BAM in record time

BAM Construction recently completed a new £21 million building for Great Western Academy (GWA) in Swindon.

The three-storey secondary teaching and learning school will provide, excellent facilities for the delivery of a full secondary and post-16 curriculum with a major focus on business, enterprise and technology for 1210 pupils.

The Brief

Innova Design Group was appointed by BAM to deliver school furniture on very short deadlines and to ensure Great Western Academy in Swindon, could be fitted out and successfully completed ready for the new term.

With a state-of-the-art in-house, manufacturing facility, Innova rescued the furniture and fit of 50 rooms, including Laboratories, Food Technology rooms, Art Rooms, Music rooms and ICT spaces, by delivering to the highest standard in record time.

“BAM Construct UK very much appreciated Innova’s commitment in assisting the successful completion of the Great Western Academy Swindon. We look forward to Innova becoming a regularly member of the Bam Supply Chain.”

Richard Dewey Project Manager BAM Construction, Swindon

The Solution

Innova played a crucial role in the success of the project from receiving the designs,  matching board and edging colours specified, sourcing new raw materials quickly to producing goods accurately and efficiently with just in time deliveries, keeping the project moving.

Stepping in at short notice Innova was able to turn around quality product to very tight deadlines, allowing BAM Constructions’ finishing sequence to progress and handover date to be maintained.

The school will have its official opening day in October where it will invite local MPs, dignitaries, and British space scientist and co-presenter on The Sky at Night TV show, Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE, who will give the first of annual inspiring talks planned for pupils.
