Riverside Primary

Introduction – Riverside Primary Colchester

Welcome to Riverside Primary School and Nursery. To respond to growing numbers, we are currently expanding our building to become a two-form entry school, with up-to date facilities, in the heart of Maidenhead.

Everyone at Riverside, staff and Governors, strives to provide the highest standard of educational opportunities for our children.  Our vision for Riverside is to provide the highest quality of teaching and extra-curricular activities. We offer all our children an enjoyable and stimulating learning environment underlined by traditional values of discipline, self-reliance, courtesy, knowing right from wrong and respecting others.

The first-rate team of teachers and support staff act as role models, educating and nurturing each child to bring out their individual strengths and achievements and to enable them to become capable, caring and confident citizens of the future. To achieve our aims, we work closely with parents so that we understand the needs of your children and to address any concerns or anxieties that you may have.

We warmly invite you to come and visit us at Riverside School and to see for yourselves the range of experiences we can offer your child. I am pleased that you have visited our website and look forward to meeting some of you soon.

Luckily for Bridge Timber, we were recommended by another school, to provide a quotation for a proposed Eco Classroom at Riverside Primary.

Riverside School requested a quotation to provide an additional learning space for approx. 30 students.  The classroom was to include toilets, one toilet to be disabled.

The meeting was arrange between the head teacher Nick, and Paul Charnley.  A specification was discussed to suit the school requirements.

The eco classroom would be a standalone unit, with excavations required, ground workers attended to quote works.


It was decided a helicoil foundation would be used for this installation.  A screw foundation replaces the standard concrete foundation.

The overall Classroom was to measure approx. 60m2 and would be manufactured using SIP Panels (Structural Insulated Panels), which conform to building regulations, 125mm SIPS were used in the floor and walls, with 175mm SIPS used for the roof structure.  SIPS conform to building regulations.

Externally the classroom was clad with Western Red Cedar.  One obvious advantage of cedar cladding is that it is a natural product and a sustainable product. This means that if you use it you are protecting the environment and reducing the carbon footprint of your building.

Our eco classrooms come complete with Aluminium double doors, with an option of bi-fold.  For this build we supplied double doors in UPVC.  UPVC windows installed in our standard anthracite grey colour to match the powder coated aluminium doors (When supplied).

Standard roofing would be box profile roof sheets, with a UPVC guttering system to the rear.

As standard all classrooms are finished internally with plasterboard skim finish to all walls and ceilings.  Internal decoration can be included at an additional cost.

Flooring options are commercial grade flooring, commercial grade carpet tiles, with option of vinyl to the kitchen and bathroom areas.

Our standard electrical package consist of downlights, quantity is appropriate for the size of the building, power sockets, again this is discussed prior to installation to ensure the school are happy with the quantity.  Heating is discussed prior to installation, and in most cases to conform to building control, SBEM cal’cs along with Air conditioning is required.  Air conditioning is the preferred solution and was installed at St Ambrose.

A stunning Classroom manufactured at Riverside Primary, we wish the school and children many of happy years in their new Eco Classroom.
