Window & Door Replacement

Southlands High School, Chorley

The windows on the original buildings at the school dated back to the construction of the school in 1955. The frames were corroded and rotten and the glazing was generally single glazed and was not safety glass. Also, the decoration was very poor with paint peeling and the elements were a huge maintenance burden. CIF Funding was approved to replace the windows, drastically reducing future maintenance costs. The works also improved the school’s aesthetics and reduced energy costs.

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!"
