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.



“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.”
