The Window Company (Contracts) has completed the second and final phase of the CIF (Condition Improvement Fund) funded replacement scheme at Hatcham College, a school for 3-18 year olds in south-east London, after previously completing phase.
As previously, The Window Company (Contracts) fitted bespoke timber vertical sliding sash windows on the front elevations of the building to meet the requirements of the conservation area setting, along with sympathetically styled Veka Matrix arched head vertical sliders and tilt and turn windows with Georgian bars on the rear.
Because the Chelmsford based company is independent and works with suppliers fabricating in timber, PVCU and aluminium, it could identify and source products that perfectly matched the different elements of the specification, while still representing best value for the school, the company said.
The Window Company (Contracts) has extensive experience and a growing reputation in the education sector. Its team are all DBS checked and fully trained to work on school sites and it has the flexibility to be able to deploy fitters at short notice to work during school closure times.
On both phases of the Hatcham College installation, the company was appointed as the principle contractor by Arcadis Consulting, working on behalf of the Haberdasher’s Askes’ School Federation.
The school’s business manager Mary Williams said: “We knew that we could trust everyone on the team and, with one project manager responsible for everything on site, they were very easy to work with. Nothing was too much trouble and we would definitely work with them again.”
