Ventrolla brings old school house back to life

Ventrolla brings old school house back to life

Ventrolla has been tasked with renovating and replacing more than 40 windows at the old school house building at The Lancaster Royal Grammar School. The Old School House building dates back to 1851 and, on completion, will provide additional teaching space, a large performance area for drama students, a sixth-form centre and a new refectory for sixth-form use.

Bespoke casements, sash and dormer windows and double glazing replacements were manufactured for the Old School House to match the existing window profiles. To minimise the visual impact of the new windows, some reveals were removed, refitted and then walls were re-plastered to hide the reveals.

Dr Christopher Pyle, Headmaster at Lancaster Royal Grammar School, said: “The Old School House is a well-loved building and we are delighted with the service that Ventrolla provided. Ventrolla’s team of craftsmen ensured the restoration of the old windows and installation of new ones was sympathetic to the building’s heritage.”
