ERW’s commercial division has recently been awarded two large contracts within the education sector. The first sees us involved in the fenestration element of the current INTO Newcastle scheme to regenerate the historic Porter Building area of Newcastle University, and the second is the new build Jesmond Road primary school in Hartlepool.
Phillip Wall, ERW’s Commercial Manager comments: “Despite the doom and gloom that followed Government’s recent Comprehensive Spending Review, it’s good to see investment into the North East’s educational sector is still continuing – and of course we are delighted to play a role in these regeneration programmes in our region.
“Working closely with MGM Specialist Construction Services, our brief for Newcastle University is to replace all the existing timber windows in the St Thomas street elevation, totaling 85 new fully factory finished vertical sliding sash windows and 13 casement windows. Of particular note in this project is the planning requirement to incorporate specialist, superior performance acoustic glass and acoustic trickle ventilation within the windows we are manufacturing and installing. The second project for Jesmond Road primary school will see us partnering with one of the region’s largest contractors Surgo Ltd on their new build project, where we have responsibility for manufacturing and installing 45 high performance, fully factory finished flush casement windows and combination screens.
“ERW has a strong heritage in the North East’s commercial regeneration and new build sectors and we enjoy strong relationships with many of the region’s leading contractors, architects, builders and planning and conservation offices. Always happy to grow and develop our network of partners, if you’d like to meet us to discuss your current or future commercial requirements then please get in touch.”
