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.
