One of our latest projects is our work on Denby C.E First School, Goose Green, Upper Denby.
Due to the increase in pupil numbers, Eurolink have been appointed to increase the hard-play area for the children & provide off-road parking for staff.
We have been involved from the start helping with design & planning, providing the required drawings and information for submission to Kirklees MC Planning Department.
The School will benefit from two new marked playing courts, extended play area and a tarmac path for the existing vegetable garden and field.
The staff now have off road parking for up to 9 cars from the existing entrance to the field. We have incorporated a sustainable urban Gridforce Drainage System to help manage surface water run.
The final touches are due to be completed before the return to school for the new September Intake.

Last month our two teams of walkers set off to conquer the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge raising funds for the Huddersfield Town Foundation. In total there were 74 participants and one dog who completed the challenge within the 12 hour target.
In the lead up to the event our two teams were given the task of raising sponsorship for The Foundation. Our sponsorship target was to reach a total of £2,000 which was easily achieved prior to the challenge.
Surprisingly, once the challenge was completed we continued to receive donations which took us well above our target. In total now, we have raised £3,000 which we are completely overwhelmed at. We would like to thank all the businesses, friends and families that have donated towards achieving this milestone.
The £3,000 that we raised has contributed towards the final total of the Three Peaks Challenge of a whopping £22,000! What an incredible achievement! The funds will go towards the Town Foundation’s aim of improving the lives of children and young people across the region through innovative projects such as the ‘Early Kick-Off’ Breakfast Clubs.
We hope to continue to support The Huddersfield Town Foundation at further events as they do such fantastic work in the community.
Over the past few months, our team have been constructing a building at Holmfirth High School, called ‘The Lookout’.
The Lookout is a learning space that will be hired out to the local community and businesses as a venue to hold courses, training days and events. We were recommended to the school by a previous client after they had been let down by a contractor. The school not only needed somebody to match the planning criteria, specification and budget but also meet their fast approaching delivery date.
The 57 square meter teaching space, required to enhance the schools outdoor allotment area, had to be designed and manufactured to ensure it complimented it’s proposed new tree lined woodland surroundings. The client wanted to give the appearance of a traditional log cabin complete with pitched roof and timber clad construction. The aim of the design was to ensure the full use of the indoor/outdoor teaching space could be appreciated and they could ‘bring the outside in’.
The units were constructed off site then craned into place during the holiday from the main entrance. Although the site was quieter than usual, the site remained fully functional and we were working against the clock to ensure minimal disruption to the school and the Hey day’s children’s nursery.
Last Tuesday (7th July), we were invited to attend the grand opening of ‘The Lookout’, where the new building was opened by the Mayor of Kirklees. Along with this, we donated a tree which takes pride place in the garden! It was a proud day for us here at Eurolink and brilliant to be part of it all!
It has been a great privilege to work with the school, and it is a brilliant accomplishment to provide a venue that will benefit the local community for the foreseeable future.
