Back in 2018 Hazlemere Commercial were approached by Arcadis to ask if we would assist them in the preparation of a Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) bid for replacement aluminium windows and doors and attended Turves Green Primary School to measure up for a detailed quotation.

Arcadis then asked Hazlemere Commercial to undertake a high level window condition survey in order to highlight the dreadful state of the existing windows, using numerous close up photographs taken onsite by Hazlemere. As fenestration experts with 35 years experience and as independent manufacturers and installers, Hazlemere were able to assist Arcadis and the school by undertaking a detailed survey of the existing doors and windows, giving the Condition Improvement Fund assessors both a visual and a written assessment of the problems with the failed fenestration. The CIF Bid was then submitted by Arcadis based on Hazlemere Commercial’s quotation, along with Hazlemere Commercial’s window condition survey.

Thankfully, the CIF Bid was successful and Turves Green Primary School secured CIF funding for £420,000 to be able to replace all the windows and doors at the school that so badly needed doing to improve the school’s teaching environment, save on heating costs and upgrade security. Hazlemere Commercial then received the order to professionally survey, procure the materials and then manufacture and install replacement aluminium powder coated windows in RAL 9910 Hipca, and unusually all the replacement aluminium powder coated door outer-frames in RAL 9910 Hipca Gloss White, but all the aluminium double glazed door leaves in RAL  2002 Red Gloss.

The commercial aluminium fenestration products used on this project were Sapa Dualframe 75 double glazed aluminium windows, double glazed automatic sliding aluminium doors and Sapa STII high performance commercial aluminium entrance doors.

There were some real time management and scheduling challenges with this project, as the school required that the entire window and door replacement project was installed out of school time between 16:00-21:00 each weekday. In order not to disrupt the school’s running in any way, Hazlemere Commercial agreed to also undertake some of the works during the Christmas 2019 school holidays, as well as work at weekends.
