Avanti Meadows Primary School Bishops Stortford

Brand New Primary School 

HBC is delighted to have been appointed on behalf of Hertfordshire County Council to provide the building control service for this brand new primary school. Working alongside Balfour Beatty; the project is now complete. The Avanti Meadows Primary School in Bishops Stortford looks like a fantastic space for the next generation.

Our inspections began back in July 2019 when the foundation excavations were in place. The works continued through the coronavirus pandemic to reach completion in late 2020. Currently, the site is used as a vaccination centre for the coronavirus pandemic, but the school is due to open in September 2021 with a three-form entry into reception. The 90 reception class pupils will eventually grow to 630 pupils across its seven year groups. 

Deborah Walters principal of the new school said: “The site for Avanti Meadows will be a brand new building and the facilities will be bespoke, contemporary, and first-class, which will make for a unique learning experience”.

On completion, the school certainly looks impressive and we’re pleased to have been part of its very early stages!
