Barker was appointed to assist the client with preparing their Condition Improvement Funding bids for re-roofing and replacement works of some high-level windows in the main hall and cladding to the front of the school building.
Starting with a whole school site survey, works were prioritised by urgency and effect on the school's operations. Barker tendered the works to obtain competitive prices from suitable contractors and completed the CIF bid application on behalf of the client. Our team worked with Bauder to design a new roofing system to be installed. The application was succesful with all funding secured towards the re-roofing and cladding works at the school.
Barker was further instructed to deliver the project. Ashe Roofing Ltd were appointed as contractors to undertake the works. They were responsible for installing all roofing and cladding materials on site.
Works were completed in 19 weeks both during and outside school working hours minimising disruption to the school.
Barker continues to work with the client on further CIF bids in the next round for roofing Phase 2 and fire safety works.
We have been very happy with the professional service we have received from Barker Associates in all aspects of the project, including preparation of the CIF bid and project management of the works. The attention to detail has ensured that the end result complements the stonework on Presdales Mansion which dates back to the 1860s.
