BHAPM was recently appointed the Somers School Camp Redevelopment. Somers School Camp had eight asbestos containing dormitory rooms, which slept 160 students at a time. These buildings had significant asbestos throughout, which posed a risk to the students attending the camp. The camp runs all year round. Therefore, the project needed to be completed within a tight time frame to limit the impact.
To provide eight prefabricated dormitory rooms, that sleep up to 20 students. The buildings required sleeping quarters, shower and toilet facilities and break out learning spaces.
Eight weeks was allotted for the asbestos removal, demolition and the delivery and establishment of the new dorm rooms. The agreed hand over date was the 2nd of June in order to accommodate a camp of 160 students turning up on the 6th of June.
The project was completed in the tight time frame with limited disruption to the camp, due to providing prefabricated buildings.
Being prefabricated, the buildings align with the camp’s eco-friendly attitude owing to less site disturbance, minimised construction waste and our sustainability approach.
As a result, the new buildings provide the students and staff with a safe and effective spaces to deliver an outstanding camp experience.
