Hanson mortar for Coventry school rebuild

Dry silo mortar from Hanson was used in the reconstruction of the Sidney Stringer School in Coventry.

The company supplied 316 m3 of mortar in two colours over a six months period to main contractor, Kier Moss.

A fire destroyed the original school in September 2007 and it was subsequently pulled down to make way for the new building, which covers some 13,088 sq m and cost £27.3 million. The school was named after Alderman Sidney Stringer, a former mayor of Coventry who dedicated himself to the rebuilding of the city after the devastation of the Second World War.

In September 2010, the school became an academy, a government-funded, local school became an academy, a government-funded, local school that provides a first-class education for young people of all abilities.

The site hoardings on the Primrose Hill Street and Cox Street junction have been painted with murals depicting some of Coventry’s heritage and achievements.
