Some time later, the School requested a site visit – they were looking for a small refurbishment of their admin office, which (since it’s open to pupils and their parents, as well as staff) has to stay in the kind of tip-top condition you’d expect from a high-ranking educational institution.
As the work continued, it became clear that other parts of the School could do with sprucing up. Our refurbishment moved from the admin office into the school classrooms and hall. Once there, we provided carpentry services to adapt the existing shelving areas into attractive and functional lockable cupboards.
We also provided new pinboards to keep class displays as tidy as possible, which we personalised for the building itself. Each one was cut to the shape and size of the School’s classic church-style windows. We then repaired the leaded windows and replaced a number of other windows around the building, and added insulation to the admin office.
Sitting in the Great Tew Estate, it was vital that the School (which is a Grade II listed building with high beamed ceilings) maintained its sense of identity and fitted in with its surroundings. As a result we ensured that all external decoration was in keeping with this beautiful part of England.
And best of all, we were able to once more complete the entire job with a minimum of disruption to our clients. We undertook all the work required in the summer holidays, meaning that the building was ready for the new term – and looking better than ever before.
