Hazlemere Commercial acted as main contractors, undertaking a considerable amount of internal remedial upgrading works as part of this extensive refurbishment project at Abbey Woods Academy in Berinsfield in Oxfordshire. The internal refurbishment works included plumbing, electrics and carpentry.

Before being able to safely start work of the external parts of the building, they had to safely and legally remove over 200 square metres of non-notifiable low risk asbestos, placing the old carefully bagged up asbestos in special skips. Hazlemere Commercial’s workforce is accredited to be able to safely remove and legally dispose of low grade asbestos.

Hazlemere then were able to install the low maintenance commercial aluminium products to replace the old worn out walls, windows and doors. These included Sapa Dualframe SI aluminium window wall, Sapa Dualslide horizontally sliding double glazed aluminium windows and Sapa STII double glazed commercial aluminium entrance doors. Some of the works were carried out during the school holidays, and some during term time, but these latter works were scheduled around the school so as to not disrupt student studies.
