The Challenge.

To complete major internal and external refurbishments across several buildings within the school estate all during the school holiday summer recess.


An excellent project delivery that included:

Externally – numerous windows were replaced with new UPVC in rose wood externally and white internally to brighten up the rooms. Facias and gutters were replaced, as were external doors in both new UPVC and hardwood. Restoration works included Lime brick pointing, stone repairs and brick repairs. Roofing works included replacement lead work, chimney repointing - all to meet conservation standards and listed building approval.

Internally - across several buildings, the complete refurbishment of shower rooms, corridors, Head Mistress apartment, penthouse, the main entrance and the music room. Both male and female toilets refurbishments were also completed.

The Solution.

A carefully selected, skilled and experienced team came together early in the year to effectively plan the works to ensure that both quality expectations and tight timescales were achieved.
