Amiri Construction, a regional building contractor, secures £9 million independent school project. The company has been appointed by Sherborne School to build an extension to the existing school sports centre.
The project is located at the school’s current site in Sherborne and is due to be completed in the Spring of 2023.
The Sherborne School said: “We are delighted to engage Amiri as our construction partners for our exciting project to expand and enhance the sports facilities at the School. This development will more than double the footprint of Sherborne’s existing sports centre, including a second larger sports hall, new, triple-sized, high performance and general fitness gyms, two new squash courts and full-length indoor cricket nets. This will improve opportunities for all boys and allow elite teams to train year-round, bringing significant performance enhancement for all. This will also allow us to expand public access to the sports facilities.”
Jon Daines, area director of the Amiri Bournemouth office says: “We are excited to have been entrusted the delivery of this project by Sherborne School. This project combines our wealth of experience and knowledge of independent schools and heritage sectors. We look forward to using these delivering an exceptional Amiri project experience which will offer truly excellent facilities for the school pupils and wider community.”
