Newport High School – “Doing what it says on the tin!”

15 Apr
Monday 15th April 2013
3.45pm – 5.30pm
Newport High School, NP20 7YB

This is your opportunity to learn how Newport City Council, Leadbitter, HLM Architects and their other partners have delivered an Exemplar project based on the core Constructing Excellence principles of collaboration, integrated teams, committed leadership and respect for people.

The project, which was completed in 2010, has created a new community focused Secondary School which has led to increased educational performance, higher pupil intake, greater community engagement and increased regeneration of the area. Significant social benefits were derived during the construction stage through engagement with local schools, recruitment and up-skilling of economically inactive individuals and business opportunities for local suppliers. These social benefits are continuing through the active community use of these facilities. Significant environmental benefits are also being experienced through the increased energy performance of the assets.

This is your opportunity to hear from:
• the headteacher on the impact on pupils, teachers and educational outcomes
• the local authority client on the impact on the community
• the facilities management and maintenance team on whole life cost implication and how technology is supporting energy performance and costs
• the delivery team on how they achieved all of this and what lessons have been learnt

This project was put forward as part of the Constructing Excellence in Wales Exemplar Programme so that others can learn from the actions taken by the team to deliver economic, social and environmental benefits. Copies of the post-occupation case study will be available on the day and can also be accessed via this link.

Who should attend?
• Clients and procurers – to learn how to build a strong team from an early stage to deliver greater value
• Contractors and Consultants – to better understand how their culture and behaviour can positively support clients and procurers in developing successful projects
• Facilities managers and maintenance teams – to consider the impact of the design and construction stages on the whole life costs of the asset.

Refreshments and registration will be from 3.45pm and the event will commence at 4pm with a presentation by the team followed by a tour of the site. The event will conclude at 5.30pm.
