Conversion of Thornecliffe Hall for Chapeltown Academy

The Conversion will involve various ground and first floor areas within Thorncliffe Hall for Chapeltown Academy.

This historic building dates back to the dawn of the industrial Revolution in the 1790’s where it was utilised as the Headquarters for Newton, Chambers and Company when they began extracting coal and ironstone from Thorncliffe Valley.

Since then it has undergone a number of changes and will shortly be part of a new site for Chapeltown Academy Sixth Form College. A beautiful, majestic and iconic building which will house 17 classrooms, three laboratories and extensive common room in addition to the other facilities you would expect a sixth form college to contain.




 Working with the principle contractor – R. H. Fullwood & Co. Ltd., we will be responsible for undertaking the alterations

to existing mechanical services, inclusive of heating, domestic water, ventilation and drainage works.

We are proud and privileged to be associated with this project.
