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.


This 16-week project valued at £650,000 was managed by Longley’s Anthony Whitty with Redbridge Council’s Project Lead Shamim Ahmed with Consultant Project Lead Michael Perschky and Technical Consultant Scott Tillsley from Ingleton Wood.
