Rund Partnership were appointed by Mitie as Clerk of Works to assist with the replacement of 41 damaged fire doors and frames due to vandalism during a break in at Epping St John’s Church of England School.
Epping St John’s School was a brand new school that opened in September 2013. This multi-million pound building was designed to blend in with the surrounding countryside and ancient Epping Forest. Throughout the new building the warmth of the timber finish can be seen from the birch cladding, to the oak doors, the bespoke classroom furniture and student work benches.
Our Clerk of Works ensured a quality finish to meet with the high specification of the school and that all new doors passed the fire inspection. Due to the Clerk of Works’ background and expertise in carpentry and finished joinery, he was able to help overcome issues on the initial fitting of the sets and ensure the desired quality was achieved.
Being present on site during the works also allowed us to monitor the contractor and the method to which the task was undertaken.
The works were carried out during the week of the secondary school’s holiday period in February 2014 to avoid disruption to the running of the school.
