Windows and doors for Castleford Academy

Project: Castleford Academy
Location: Yorkshire
Fabricator: Jade Windows
Product: Elite 70 + bevelled

Jade Windows has completed a large project at Castleford Academy which saw the establishment self-fund a two phase refurbishment of windows, doors and a fully glazed corridor.

With over 1200 students attending Castleford Academy the need for refurbishment was apparent the original school was built in 1906 and despite the addition of a sports hall and drama studio, the building had become tired and desperately needed an overhaul.

Jade Windows was contracted to supply the windows and curtain walling for the project. Phase one began early in 2013 with a focus on the refurbishment of kitchens, classrooms and library, along with the supply of new arched windows for the school and fully glazed corridor screens. Ryan , estimating manager at Jade Windows explains: “As in all these cases deadlines have to be met; we needed to ensure a reliable supply chain. Having worked with Spectus Window Systems for 16 years we were confident of their ability to supply a consistently high standard of product. For this project we used their flagship product, Elite 70 with a bevelled design.”

The first phase of the project finished at Easter and phase two commenced immediately after, this included a large science block and a three storey building which saw Jade Windows fabricate and supply around 150 windows. The project is now complete, and to the satisfaction of all concerned.
