Kingfisher Primary School Landscape

Primary School Landscape | Yeovil, Somerset

  • Contract Type: Design and Build
  • Status: Completed
  • Main Contractor: BAM Construction

Kingfisher Primary was a 2 Form Entry Primary School procured through Futures for Somerset as a design and build contract on the basis of a Stage 3 design with planning approval. NVB provided landscape and architecture services.
The Stage 3 design was developed further incorporating the significant level changes across the site. These level changes were exploited with features such as an amphitheatre facing onto the playground. NVB further developed the scheme, rationalising access, the EYFS spaces, cycle parking and playground layout.
The construction site set-up allowed the playing field to be formed and seeded early in the programme to allow it to establish for when the school was completed. This allowed the pitch to be used as soon as the pupils started at the school.
