Weatherite Building Services has installed new kitchen extract canopies at 18 schools across Hertfordshire as part of Hertfordshire County Council’s major education refurbishment programme. The project, which was carried out between October 2006 and April 2007 included providing each school with a new island kitchen canopy, extract ductwork, fan, electrics, gas and water supply.

Weatherite was awarded contracts totalling £300,000 by Jarvis Contracting Limited because of their wealth of experience, excellent product knowledge and competitive prices.

The project, which was carried out between October 2006 and April 2007 included providing each school with a new island kitchen canopy, extract ductwork, fan, electrics, gas and water supply.

The schools, including Fleetville School in St Albans, and Knutsford School in Watford, have been very impressed with the results. Clive Brearley, Sales Manager, commented: “We are delighted with the success of this project, which really tested our ability to complete large scale works in a very tight timescale. Most installations were carried out during term time to a very tight timescale to ensure minimal disruption to both teachers and pupils. Despite having to deal with the added problem of asbestos at some of the sites, this still did not prevent us from meeting the client’s deadline.”

WBS is part of the £40m Weatherite Group, one of the UK’s leaders in air conditioning and air handling equipment. WBS has expanded its activities to cover other sectors of the building services market including heating, ventilation, boiler house refurbishment, water, control systems and electrics as well as all aspects of commercial air conditioning systems, offering a single source choice to its customers which includes full project management, design, installation and commissioning capabilities.
