Academy receives traditional looking building in just 11 weeks!
Wernick Buildings were selected to build the new classroom facility after a competitive tendering procurement process by the Academy for their rapidly expanding 6th form intake.
Janine Tuck, who is the Facilities Manager at Langley Academy commented: “When I received all the tenders back for the new proposed facility, I was surprised at the speed of which the project could be finished by Wernick Buildings. We are a very busy Academy and minimal disruption to our site is important for all our Students and Staff”.
The newly constructed classroom facility comprises of three individual class rooms which have been designed with the flexibility of being converted into one large assembly room. This is achieved with specially designed fold-away partitions which provide an exceptional 48db sound proof rating. The inside to the facility has a full suspended ceiling grid throughout which is complemented by a high standard of internal finishes and the latest state of the art IT equipment. The facility externally features a visually pleasing finish of real brick and render, which is fully complimented with a 22.5 degree traditional tiled Dutch barn roof which matches the existing neighboring building.
Janine was very happy with the fast track build provided by Wernick. She commented, “Communication with the Wernick team from start to finish was excellent and any issues arising were dealt with promptly, I am totally impressed of how the finished building looks ‘just like a traditional looking building’. Wernick offered a 14 week Programme however; they achieved the whole project in just 11 weeks. Our whole experience of engaging Wernick Buildings to deliver our new facility was exceptional and most importantly for us - on budget”.
