Francis Combe Academy


At a Glance

Francis Combe Academy is part of the government’s ‘building schools for the future’ initiative and is the first academy to be built in Hertfordshire. This flagship £24m development was very much in the public eye and needed to go without a hitch. Creating the new academy involved 81% new build and 19% refurbishment of a general, teaching block. The finished building, accommodating 1050 pupils was over a combination of 2 and 3 stories and needed to cater for specialisms in art, design and communications.

Our turnkey solution was carefully developed by our experts and involved close collaboration with construction firm Kier and DNO UKPN. The infrastructure provided 1000kVA for the new school, we also created a substation and developed a bespoke LV Panel.
