Bere Regis Primary School was constructed as part of Dorset County Council’s Purbeck Reorganisation programme and followed the ‘baseline design’ approach developed by the council’s Dorset Property team. This type of design is a standardised, repeatable design that provides innovative, practical and low-cost solutions, without compromising quality. The main contractor of the project was Morgan Sindall.

Cllr Daryl Turner, the county council’s Cabinet member for the natural and built environment said, “ I am so pleased with the recognition for Dorset property working with its Children’s Services Client on the ‘baseline’ school project at Bere Regis. A product of the savings driven from the Purbeck Reorganisation and already a Bronze Considerate Constructors Award Winner”

The primary school includes five class bases, a hall, games court, grass playing field and a pre-school facility. The previous old brick building was home to the school for over 80 years and was not large enough or appropriate for teaching today’s curriculum.

The winner was announced at an award ceremony in Cambridge on 11 October.
