Brighouse High School Refurbishment


Eddisons was approached by Brighouse School to assist them in submitting a CIF funding application to replace their roof.

Although the works involved stripping the roof to the deck and installing a new felt waterproofing system, the headteacher requested the works to commence as soon as possible, within a live academic environment which hosted 1600 pupils.

Whilst this was achieved, the project team uncovered licenced asbestos on site, which required immediate removal whilst managing the existing health & safety precautions and initial works – all whilst working towards a deadline and budgetary restraint.


With Eddisons’ help in writing their funding application, Brighouse Academy won £900,000 in CIF funding to cover the roof replacement scheme and appointed Eddisons to manage the project too.

The Building & Projects Consultancy team conducted a lot of the design work in advance of winning the award. This work included defect analysis, programme estimation and advice, risk management and tender procurement.

On appointment, we acted as Principal Designer under CDM Regulations 2015 and Contract Administrator. Under this title, the programming of the works, phasing and health and safety considerations needed to be professionally and carefully managed by our team. We ensured all health and safety documentation was received, reviewed, and circulated to all parties within a matter of weeks.


The project was delivered below budget, producing enough savings to allow the Academy to make upgrades to other associated roof items outside the original scope of works.

The works have resulted in many benefits to Brighouse Academy including a reduction of heating usage and bills.

With the project programme scheduled for at least a 6-month construction period, an early start on site was a clear aim to make full use of the best of the British weather. Our proactive preparation allowed this early commencement to be achieved.
