We’re sure you’ve heard or read about the recent stories regarding schools throughout Britain, where serious concerns have been brought to the forefront over below-par building safety practices. Following a series of ‘worrying incidents’, teachers have triggered calls for local councils to take back control of future construction and renovations relating to schools and academies across Scotland. Recent incidents include the closure of a new £28 million Dumfries school campus after a child was struck by a smart board that became detached from a wall, and parents raising concerns amid safety fears during ongoing roof repairs at an Aberdeenshire primary school.
Although these incidents focus in on Scotland, it’s extremely important for schools right across the UK to consistently provide a safe and secure learning environment for all. This is something we take very seriously here at Shelforce, having worked on several successful renovation projects in schools.
New windows & doors for Chivenor School
Working for Kendrick construction in association with Chivenor primary school in Birmingham, the Shelforce team worked tirelessly to manufacture & install high-quality replacement windows, doors and fascia for all classrooms, offices, corridors and canteen area. Firmly dedicated to encouraging a consistent culture of learning and inclusion, some of the children from the school even helped us make the windows via our detailed work experience programme! The project was completed during the summer holidays, successfully finishing on time and within budget.
