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.



“We had a Schedule of Condition carried out on a Commercial Property. From vacant possession to our proposed completion date we were really tight on time. Gary managed to carry out the inspection and write a very thorough report in the time needed to ensure we hit our completion date. The price of the report was also extremely competitive. I would recommend Lea Hough to anyone looking for a Professional Surveyors with excellent service & communication at a competitive price.”
