Introduction / Scope:

We were appointed by Ingleton Wood to undertake the upgrade of existing doors, partitions, and glazed screens within Newstead Wood Girls School. All works were undertaken in a live environment. Works consisted of replacement of upgrade, surrounding partition upgrade and decorations of 60 number circulation doors and stair core glazed screen within the school.

During the contract, the client’s ProjectManager issued multiple variations to the original scope and contract works. We worked with the client to produce a scope of work that could be included in the six-week summer break and undertook the remaining works out of hours and at weekends so as not to effect the opening of the school following the summer break.

All works completed for there-occupation were focused around the school being compliant and to the new design fire strategy and with the non-fire strategy critical works being undertaken in the following weeks
