Rund is appointed 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 this year. 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.

Our appointment with SAST demonstrates our commitment to delivering only the highest standards in quality refurbishment works. The project has benefitted from our strong relationship with several highly valued manufacturers who guarantee high-quality material provision, helping strengthen our quality offering.

Shaftesbury School is one of only 38 state boarding schools in the country, accommodating both UK and international students. The school has four dedicated houses on site, with its Barton Hill boarding residents providing accommodation for over 100 boarders.

Sherborne Area Schools’ Trust is a special collaboration of high performing primary and secondary schools, located across West and North Dorset and South Somerset.
