Contractor Appointed for Yarm Music School

Darlington based contractor Wharton Construction Ltd. has been selected to deliver Associated Architects’ Music School scheme for Yarm School.

The high quality contemporary building will sit adjacent to The Friarage, a Grade II listed building, which is currently occupied by the School’s administrative offices and arts department. The Music School is the latest phase of a comprehensive “masterplan”: developed by Associated Architects for the independent school in Stockton-on-Tees.

The new building will contain a recording studio, music practice spaces, a lecture theatre, classrooms, instrument storage and staff offices. It is intended that the flexible lecture theatre will be used as a multi-purpose teaching space and also for school events and performances.
