Construction of Cherry Fields Primary School with Bowmer + Kirkland

3rd Apr 2020 | Posted In Project updates

The Allied Glazing Systems team is delighted to be involved in another project with Bowmer + Kirkland. The project will be completed as part of the Southern Schools Framework for the ESFA, which has a total value of £2.6million.

Bowmer + Kirkland secured a place on the government’s £8bn framework for the construction of new schools in England, which means they are able to bid for future work from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) to roll out its programme of new school buildings across the country.

The construction of a new school in Banbury called Cherry Fields Primary School, Southam Road commenced in October 2019 and will continue to completion in September 2020.

The new school will provide 270 places for pupils aged 6-11 including six places for Special Educational Needs pupils and 60 nursery places, all of whom can enjoy the brand new facilities from the sports hall, library and catering facilities to the outdoor areas for teaching and play.

The Allied Glazing Systems team has been selected to design, fabricate and install Senior Architectural Systems’ Pure Windows, SPW501 commercial doors and SF52 curtain walling. These systems were chosen for their thermal performance, their stylish and sleek appearance, ease of fabrication and cost effectiveness against other systems.

Jon Chaloner, CEO of GLF Schools, said: “We are delighted to see work starting on Cherry Fields primary school, which will be part of an extensive community of experienced and supportive colleagues across our 40 current GLF schools.

“All of us are looking forward to welcoming the first children into a purpose-built space which will provide a wonderful environment for their learning experience and with the room to grow as we need to.”
