Burnley Brow School

Sector: Education
Project: Burnley Brow School
Location: Victoria St/Eustace St, Oldham
Value: £6.8M
Year: 2002
Contractor: John Turner & Sons (Preston)

2FE new build primary school sited on a brownfield former textile mill site for Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council. Brenden Harrison led an in-house OMBC team from feasibility stage through to a smooth transition for the staff and pupils into the new school. Extensive site remediation was required within a tight programme to relocate the school from a dilapidated Victorian school building nearby.

This school represents one of Brenden’s early school building projects which has led to a continual involvement in the education sector for the past fifteen years including later works for OMBC and local authorities in Leeds, Bradford, Milton Keynes, St. Helens, Manchester and Rochdale.
