Ipswich-based building firm SEH French has been working on projects at six Suffolk primary schools ahead of this week’s return of pupils from the summer holiday.

Among the schemes were the construction of two annexe buildings to increase classroom capacity at Whitehouse Primary in Ipswich and Great Heath Primary in Mildenhall.

SEH French, part of EADT/EDP Top 100 company One Group Construction, has also constructed a new play centre at Trinity Primary, Stowmarket, and a mix of extensions, alterations and refurbishments at Abbots Hall Primary, also in Stowmarket, St Margaret’s Primary, Ipswich, and Broke Hall Primary, Rushmere.

The annexe at Whitehouse Primary, providing six additional classrooms, was designed by Concertus and features colourful glazed brickwork on the exterior.

Simon Girling, managing director at SEH French, said: “It was a pleasure to work with Concertus, delivering this fantastic project, which provides a wonderful environment for the children and staff to work in.”
