Ripon College and Grammar School

Two partnered projects which were run simultaneously with sites adjacent to each other. For Ripon College the works involved the construction of a new 2 storey library and classroom block with the demolition of part of the existing college to form a hard play area for basketball, tennis and 5 a-side football. For Ripon Grammar School the works involved the construction of a two storey IT and classroom block and demolition of a number of existing temporary buildings. The new build element of both projects was scheduled for 36 weeks with the College handed over three weeks early and the Grammar School five weeks early allowing both establishments to take possession prior to the start of the new school year.

“(We were) impressed with the quality of construction executed by Parkinsons as well as the way in which the building’s size and arrangement respected the proportions of the local streetscape whilst providing space in ingenious ways.”
