A total of 60 windows in the ‘A block’ have been replaced by the team as well as several external doors. The new aluminium windows are double glazed and feature Teleflex operating mechanisms. The doors have been sprayed with a polyester powder coating to ensure a durable solution that is resistant to bad weather, chipping and colour fade.
Robert Tuffin, Commercial Director at LST, said: “This upgrade has replaced outdated and inefficient windows with a more aesthetic solution. The new aluminium windows will make the building more visually appealing and energy efficient, preventing heat from escaping in the winter and keeping classrooms cooler in the summer.”
The project was delivered thanks to the Government’s Condition Improvement Fund (CIF). LST is currently on site delivering similar refurbishments for schools which have received this funding, including Robert May’s School in Hampshire and St Anne’s Catholic School in Southampton.
This is the second project LST has delivered for Oaklands Catholic School and Sixth Form College. The team was previously appointed to deliver a complete internal refurbishment of one of its main teaching blocks, improving facilities for students.
