Manford Primary School

Manford Primary School

Replacement of crittal windows and installing 173 new aluminium windows and 21 fire exit doors.

Type – Door and window replacement 
Project Value – £400k
Duration – 10 weeks

Manford Primary School, a 10-week project valued at £400,000 for Longley’s clients the London Borough of Redbridge Council has now completed. Managed by Sam Duggan and Alfie Longley, working with client representative Shamim Ahmed from the council and Consultant Project Lead and Technical Consultants John Rowan Partners.

The Manford School project involved the replacement of crittal windows and installing 173 new aluminium windows and 21 fire exit doors. A challenge on this project was sourcing the specific window design suitable for the building’s existing fabrication. Due to window levels being quite high Teleflex winding mechanisms were also installed. Asbestos encapsulation was also carried out and 120 meters of cladding to external soffits.

On account of Covid-19 regulations and social distancing rules, part of this work had to be conducted outside of school hours to avoid disrupting the children of key workers attending the school. When it was necessary to carry out works whilst the school was in occupation, the team were restricted to allocated areas and working out of sequence to ensure the   children and staff remained safe at all times.

Longley have built an impeccable reputation within the industry for being reactive to changing environments and unforeseen challenges on site. This ability to adapt enables them to successfully deliver projects within given timeframes, with guaranteed safety and consistently excellent standards.

Mossford Green Primary School

Mossford Green Primary School

Our works included replacement and upgrade of incoming water main, domestic water pipework and a brand new plant room.

Type – Planned preventive maintenance program (PPM)
Project Value – £650k
Duration – 16 weeks

Mossford Green Primary School was part of the planned preventive maintenance program (PPM) for the London Borough Redbridge. Our works included full plant room upgrade and boiler flue installation. Longley were originally contracted to replace the domestic water pipework, but on examination of the site the existing plant was unsuitable. A full boiler plant replacement was carried out. Suppliers used in the plant room were Remeha UK for the Qunita Ace Boilers, Grundfos for the pumps, Andrews ECOflow water heater with BMS Trinity controls. Asbestos was also discovered throughout the plantroom and Longley  arranged removal under controlled conditions via a specialist contractor. These additional works were carried out during out-of-hours in order to maintain the contract program.

Longley replaced all domestic water pipework throughout the school and an upgrade of the incoming water supply was required as the current one was insufficient for the new system. Longley installed a new water main trench and supply pipe from Thames water mains, a new BMS panel and control wiring were implemented as well as all building works and redecoration associated with facilitating the installation and all within the original contract timescales.

The school was occupied with teachers and essential key worker’s children, during the works and due to the Covid-19 regulations a reduced team onsite was necessary. Separating the trades whilst maintaining the program proved challenging to deliver within tight timescales but was achieved. Works were strategically planned with the school’s senior leadership team to avoid any risk to the pupils and staff, enabling them to attend the premises. Longley ensure strict procedures are followed by all the team and full compliance to ensure the supply chain is suitably qualified for the works.

Christchurch School was a 16-week project valued at £500,000 + managed by Longley’s Sam Duggan, Redbridge Council’s Project Lead Shamim Ahmed with Consultant Project Lead Michael Perschky and Technical Consultant Scott Tillsley from Ingleton Wood.

Following the current Covid-19 regulations and social distancing it was necessary to work with a reduced team on site which proved challenging.

This was achieved whilst maintaining the program and remaining within the short timeframes, without effecting the high standard of work.

Throughout the entire project and abiding by current Covid-19 regulations, the school was occupied with teachers and essential key worker’s children.
