We are absolutely thrilled with the effort and commitment. The project has been a huge success. Academy Business Manager
CHALLENGE

Eddisons were appointed by Parkside Academy to apply for CIF Funding to replace a single glazed, 1960’s style Curtain Walling System to a 3 storey teaching block.

Eddisons were appointed with two funding applications to replace dilapidated windows and curtain walling of a three-storey teaching block, and for improvements to the ventilation in the kitchen facilities. The Academy also requested that school colours were incorporated within the refurbishment works.

The appointment of Eddisons followed many years of working with the academy successfully to apply for, and manage, ESFA capital funded refurbishment schemes.

SOLUTION

After successfully obtaining in excess of £750,000.00 to finance the refurbishment works, Eddisons were appointed to undertake the role of Lead Designer, Principal Designer and Contract Administrator.

Working in a live academic environment to undertake the works, Eddisons managed the programme of works, phasing requirements and Health and Safety of the project from inception through to completion. Given the nature of the works, this required the expertise of our Building and Project Consultancy team to proactively provide advice, guidance and recommendations to the client in respect of how the works would be delivered successfully and safely.

The successful delivery of the project provided the academy with a modern, thermally efficient and safe academic building in which to work and learn. 

The academy no longer needs their heating system to operate throughout the day to maintain a comfortable internal temperature. This has resulted in the academy making annual savings on their utility costs, expenditure of which can be reinvested into other areas of the academy.

The client, pupils and parents are all delighted with the finished appearance of the academy which incorporated insulated panels to match the academy corporate colours.

APPROACH

  • A chartered building surveyor gathered a full brief and undertook detailed inspection.
  • We provide an options appraisal and recommendations to the senior leadership team.
  • Once designs were agreed, two funding applications were drafted and submitted to the ESFA – satisfying all requirements.
  • On successful award the majority of work was scheduled for the summer – given the complexity and potential disruption.
  • Eddisons managed an early design process and competitive tender to secure an approved contractor in order for materials to be ordered early and demonstrate value for money.
RESULTS

 The successful delivery of the project provided the academy with a modern, thermally efficient and safe academic building in which to work and learn.

 The academy no longer needs their heating system to operate throughout the day to maintain a comfortable internal temperature. This has resulted in the academy making annual savings on their utility costs, expenditure of which can be reinvested into other areas of the academy.

IN SUMMARY

  • Two successful funding applications were submitted securing over £800,000.
  • Disruption was minimised with the project occurring over the summer period and finishing ahead of the anticipated completion date.
  • Works were completed in line with application costs.
