Back to school as fabricator wins two education contracts

WELSH fabricator Dudley’s Aluminium will support the construction of two schools in England.

The fabricator will be working with ISG Construction Ltd on Two Bridges School in Bristol (artirsts impression pictured above), a net zero carbon school for 112 pupils who have special educational needs and disabilities such as severe, profound and multiple learning difficulties and autism.

Dudley’s will install Metal Technology System capped curtain walling, doors and windows, in addition to fire rated windows and automatic swing doors.

Metal Technology System products will also be installed on Dudley’s second education sector project: Katherine Lady Berkeley’s School in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire.

The school is one of the oldest state schools in the country and its campus style will be enhanced with a new three storey teaching block and an activity studio, plus refurbishments and extensions to existing buildings to support the facilities of the school’s special educational needs department and sixth form.

Dudley’s is working with Kier Construction Ltd on the project and will install Metal Technology System capped curtain walling, doors and windows on the build, as well as automatic swing doors.

 

Colin Shorney, Managing Director at Dudley’s Aluminium, said: “We are delighted to have secured a further two projects in the education sector. These projects will provide modern learning environments to enable pupils to learn, develop and achieve their potential.”
