Barker were appointed to renew the College’s existing single glazed windows, with new aluminium powder coated thermally broken windows. Utilising the existing fenestration profile to maintain continuity across the accommodation. The new system also improved the thermal comfort to the south facing elevation with the introduction of solar controlled glass.
Logistics with deliveries and installation, due to the restricted access to the accommodation. Working around a live site and assisting the College with a new one-way system during the pandemic. This was mitigated with an effective site set up and site access plan. To assist pupil movements within their bubbles, we introduced a new boarded scaffold walkway to continue installation during the normal College day.
A very successful project delivered within the client’s budget. Students and staff now have comfortable, temperature controlled learning spaces.
Barker have been a firm partner with Tendring Technology College over the past few years. They have always worked in collaboration with us to improve our sites and bring them in line with the top estates within the education sector. Their knowledge of our sector along with the projects they have overseen, has been outstanding.
The latest project that Barker looked after has been a curtain wall remodel of a 1960's teaching block. From the initial design specifications, through the tender process to the build and completion, each stage has been a pleasure. The team has been on hand to answer any questions or pick up issues around the clock. We have been left with a building with most passers-by think is brand new! We look forward to continuing the partnership into the future with the next line of projects we have lined up.
