St. Matthews School – Refurbishment & Demolition works
St Matthews Schools
Following an original appointment by St Matthews to carry out some classrooms refurbishments we have become their contractor of choice and have worked with them on many projects.
St Matthews continue to use our service as they like our approachable attitude allowing them to work with us to get projects completed to their preferences.
We have always completed works within the school on time and budget which is very important to the operation of the school and have always been clear with costings and provided design advice allowing them to achieve the completion of works within their budget requirements.
Additionally we are acutely aware of safeguarding requirements within schools and have worked closely with them to assure that all work has been carried out in safe and convenient manner.
Nine point eight construction carried out 4 classroom refurbishments which involved the removal of the full rear wall of the classroom block and installation of a new curtain walling window system.
The classrooms where also treated to new central heating radiators, insulated suspended ceiling system, new ‘polyfloor’ commercial flooring, wet play kitchen installation, redecoration and shelving units. The works where carried out within the summer holiday period.
Creation of IT suite and cloak room.
We carried out an internal remodelling of a section of the school to create a new IT suite and 2 cloakrooms from an area that previously didn’t have much use as a space.
Nine Point Eight carried out the full works including the installation of all the CAT 5 cabling for the IT suite, erection of studwork, plastering, carpet flooring, perimeter work benches, vinyl cloakroom flooring, new internal doors and full decoration.
The works where carried out swiftly within a 2 week holiday period.
Water Tower Demolition.
Nine Point Eight was asked to demolish a disused water tower from the front of the school.
The tower was positioned in front of the main reception and was built on a steel frame with a large solid brick service shaft to the rear. We provided scaffolding to the tower and demolished the tower by hand to prevent the damage of the buildings below and safely manage the demolition process.
Following the demolition we installed a new roof over the corner of the school boiler room and mounted all the services previously situated on the tower.
Nine Point Eight was instructed to carry out the refurbishment and installation of a new entrance foyer which involved the installation of a new roof, large aluminium windows and doors followed by an internal fit out .
We installed a timber roof structure, insulated and finished with a GRP roof to replace an existing leaking roof, this was followed by a glazed aluminium façade powder coated in school colours and incorporating air vents to a ventilation system and DDA compliant doors.
Internally the new foyer area was treated to a plaster finish and full decoration with lighting and PIR movement sensors.
The works where carried out during term time with us liaising closely with the school to ensure that access and safety was maintained at all times.
