Radnor House School Sevenoaks

Site: Radnor House School Sevenoaks – (Formerly Combe Bank School, Sevenoaks)
Project: Demolition of obsolete structures and window refurbishment to main front elevation
Programme: 8 Weeks
Cost: approx. £250k

Site Description:
Radnor House School Group is an independent school with sites in Sevenoaks and Twickenham. The
Sevenoaks campus is extensive with both open space, notable buildings and wide-ranging facilities
for sport, teaching and creative activities.

Project Description:
In 2019 we were commissioned to carry out an extensive façade works of the existing main school
building. The works included preserving the architectural features and detailing of the façade.

Works:

  • Site Set up
  • Roof – NEW ASPHALT ROOF TO ROOF AREA OVER EXISTING STORE ROOM
  • Demolition of small external room
  • NEW CAST IRON RAINWATER PIPES
  • External walls – NEW BRICKWORK TO SOUTH-FACING GABLE AND PARAPET TO NEW FLAT ROOF BELOW EXISTING ROOM
  • NEW TIMBER CASEMENT WINDOWS
  • NEW TIMBER SLIDING SASH WINDOW TO SOUTH GABLE
  • STUCCO REPAIRS TO WINDOW SURROUNDS, SILLS LINTOLS, AND WALLS
  • MASONRY PAINT TO NEW AND PREVIOUSLY PAINTED STUCCO SURFACES:

Challenges:
Ensuring all times that the building remained secure and wind and watertight. The removal of each window section required replacement the same day to ensure security and safety. Working at a live operational school involves careful management of staff, pupils, parents and visitors and therefore health and safety is of paramount importance. Close liaison with the client, principal designer, designers and contractors is paramount to ensure all parties cooperate and coordinate the works to assist with the identification and reduction of risks throughout the project.

Outcomes:
Fully restored beautiful facade

High-quality finish

During the project, we delivered a safe and healthy working environment for all operatives, staff, pupils and visitors and zero reportable accident/incident rate.

Project completed on time and to budget ensuring client satisfaction and ongoing successful working relationship
