Phelans delighted to have won the £2.5m expansion contract for Great Bentley Primary School


We are very excited to be working yet again with Essex County Council and this job is due to commence in September 2023.

Phelan have delivered many great school projects through the Essex Framework over the years and we pride ourselves on our solid reputation for providing fantastic construction projects within the education sector. Our positive track record has meant we are repeatedly asked to return to previous sites to continue our good work on further stages of their developments.

We are incredibly proud of what our client’s have to say!


Andrew Smith, Executive Head

“Phelan’s were excellent I will definitely use them again for future projects”


Desi McKeown, Acting Head Teacher

“By the time the project was finished Phelan’s felt like part of the family”


Helen Roe, Atkinson Roe Architects

“Transition from the pre-contract team to the on-site team was seamless. The tight timescale meant that it was imperative that the site manager led the team in an exemplary way, planning ahead, actively and developing a detailed understanding of the project requirements and helpful whilst not stepping outside of the contract, which he did. Cooperation between all parties ensured a successful completion on time for the client. Handover occurred on time with zero defects and the final account was settled amicably.”


David Gatheral, Assistant School Capital Maintenance Manager – Infrastructure Delivery at ECC

“I am most impressed by the way the meeting went, how productive and knowledgeable the Phelan team were, and wished all meetings were as good (and productive) as that one”


Dave Bentley – Academy Site Manager

“The overall management and performance were exceptional by Phelans”
