Sponsored by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield


We were delighted to learn that Heathfield Academy was declared as Winner of Building Project of the Year 2018!


After spending two years in temporary accommodation, the staff and children at Heathfield are proud of their permanent home.  A brand new building, which was redesigned by Willmott Dixon, was completed within 49 weeks; delivering a ‘life-changing’ environment for pupils and the staff.


Although there were many challenges, the team worked together to achieve a high quality finish throughout the building.  The judges remarked: “The management team was excellent – motivated and engaged.  They really cared about what they were working towards and fully invested in achieving their goals.”


Collaboration and good communication between STEP and Willmott Dixon created a “one team” culture – something that is intrinsic to us – STEP First – we are all one team.
