Recent Projects

October 2018. Weoley Castle Pre-School Extension and Refurbishment. Value: £691,434.

The works consisted of an internal refurbishment and upgrade of the existing  toilet facilities, the construction of a ‘Timber frame’ extension to provide 3 new class rooms with adjoining toilet facilities, and the construction of an external ‘soft play’ area.

The school remained fully operational throughout the project. Careful consideration took place during the planning of the project to ensure that all site attendants were DBS checked, the construction area was fully secured from unauthorised access, deliveries were scheduled before and after school hours, strict site specific rules were adhered to ensure a complete segregation between the children and the construction works.

Chiel Construction carefully planned and managed all operations on site under CDM regulations and in conjunction with the client’s requirements and needs.
