EUROBRICK SYSTEMS LTD School Faces The Future

The existing school building stock varies widely in terms of age, construction and condition. Whether itís traditional masonry or MMC, at some point the exterior inevitably deteriorate as a result of weather and age. Arunvale Primary School, West Sussex experienced just this problem with its 1970ís Hauser style classroom buildings. A phased refurbishment programme was planned starting in 2007 with the second phase being carried out in 2009. The project involved replacing all glazing panels and removing the original external hanging tile cladding and recladding the substrate. The replacement cladding had to be durable, low maintenance and quick to install as the work was scheduled to be carried out during the summer holidays. Eurobrick Systems Ltd specialists in brick slip cladding systems were able to fulfill these criteria.

Underwood Construction Ltd, the main contractors, carried out all of the construction work including preparing the substrate before approved Eurobrick Systemsí Approved Installers, Close Tredgett Partnership, arrived to clad the first phase of the scheme. The first phase required an area of circa 60m≤ to be clad. Eurobricks 17mm thick backer panel was fixed to a plywood substrate and then faced with London Multi Buff brick slips from the Britannia Range. Eurobricksí Europoint sandstone colour mortar was used for the pointing.

The appearance of the school building was completely rejuvenated and created quite an impression. Having seen the results at Arunvale School, another nearby school at Barnham, near Bognor Regis, also opted for Eurobrick Systems for their own refurbishment.

Arunvale School and the education authority were extremely pleased with the end result, so much so, that when phase 2 was planned for 2009, there was no hesitation in specifying the same cladding system again. This phase involved installing cladding to 165m≤. The refurbishment was again undertaken by Underwood Construction with Close Tredgett Partnership carrying out the cladding installation. In order to achieve a contiguous look, the same London Multi Buff brick slips and mortar were used.

The end result has completely transformed the school and because the new cladding is low maintenance with a life expectancy in excess of 30 years, it will continue to look as good when the pupils who go there now, are sending their own children.
