Parklands Primary School, Chichester - Funding for remedial works programme

During 2017 a construction project was undertaken to increase the number of pupil places and to expand Parklands Primary School in Chichester to become a two-form entry primary school.  Following completion, a number of significant defects were identified within the new building.  Defects continued to arise and new contractors were appointed to remedy these.  The original Contractor is now working with the County Council to rectify remaining defects.

 

This report is seeking approval for the funding required to complete the essential remedial works.  Reimbursement of these funds will be sought from the original contractor.
