Window Replacement Project

Settlebeck School, Sedbergh

The single glazed windows at Settlebeck School were in poor condition. The frames were often rusted/rotten and the glazing was single glazed, with a number of cracked panes throughout. The project entailed replacing the remaining original windows, doors and curtain walling/cladding on the school site that was in overall poor condition. The result of the works provided the school with lower maintenance bills, improved energy efficiency and increased the standard of finishes to a high level for the foreseeable future. The replacement windows have a building component life expectancy of 40+ years, providing an effective solution for years to come.

All works were funded via the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) with Lea Hough having prepared the CIF funding application (on a no-charge basis) on the academy’s behalf, prepared all specifications, designs, drawings, tendered the works to achieve competitive tender prices and carried out full project-management through to overall completion.



"I have read your report again and I appreciate the level of detail and the effort you have gone to in surveying the property - thank you. You’re looking at properties every day and you know what you’re looking for – so you’ve seen things that I would never have spotted. You have opened my eyes on numerous defects on this property and am seriously thinking about leaving the idea of buying. The report was money wells spent!"
