Terra Nova school extension

Pochin completes Cheshire school project

Pochin Special Projects, part of Cheshire-based Pochin's, has completed a £250,000 conversion of Terra Nova School in Holmes Chapel, creating three new classrooms and additional storage space.

The project involved the conversion of a pre-existing garage and shed, as well as merging two classrooms to create three new classroom facilities for the school.

Antony Pochin, operations director for Pochin Special Projects, said: "Terra Nova has a fantastic history and this is something that we needed to be sensitive of during the course of the project. The converted building was formerly a rifle range and there are still bullet marks in the eaves of the building, which have been retained, as reminder of the rich history of the school."

Andrew Lewin, headmaster, added: "We are delighted with the results and the students have wasted no time getting acquainted with the new facilities which have provided Terra Nova with a new state-of-the-art computer suite, which is second to none."
