A surprising simulated tour of our new school.

Although physical work has yet to start on the new Brian Clarke CE Academy, we sat down with chosen construction team, Willmott Dixon earlier today, to discuss the project status, and were given a surprising sneak peek.

Allison Ash, the newly appointed headteacher of Brian Clarke CE Academy, visited Willmott Dixon to learn more about the new school’s status and vision. After talking over blueprints and 3D plans, Project Surveyor Pearce Darnell-Walsh and Operations Manager Simon Atkinson dialed into their lead Architect remotely to show Allison a 3D animated fly-through of the school, to see what it will look like when it is finally built.

We virtually toured the entrance and dining halls, the different floors of the building as well as certain learner spaces. The animation really helped us gain a true flavour of the space and its offerings. It was an amazing insight, and we plan on sharing it with you soon.
