Rund’s successful work in the education construction sector has been recognised again, as it celebrates a new appointment by Sherborne Area Schools’ Trust (SAST) as Contract Administrator for essential upgrade works on Shaftesbury School.
The school is set to undergo re-roofing works, with eight defective roofs being removed and replaced over the coming months. Several roofs have suffered water ingress over the years, so the project is in place to ensure high quality, durable replacements are installed.
After identifying existing roofing issues and sharing our recommendation on new materials with SAST, we were appointed to produce and submit a Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) Bid to the Government for the works. With funding successfully being granted earlier this month, our scope of service will now include day-to-day contract management, carrying out site inspections, issuing payment notices and providing an aftercare defects service.
Michael Temlett, Senior Surveyor at Rund Partnership commented: “Our appointment with SAST demonstrates our commitment to delivering only the highest standards in quality refurbishment works. We are proud to have a strong relationship with several highly valued manufacturers who guarantee high-quality material provision, helping strengthen our quality offering. We are looking forward to progressing these vital works and ensuring Shaftesbury School continues operating as a thriving educational establishment.”
