Case Study

The summer school holidays provided the perfect time for a major refurbishment of bathroom facilities at a West Midlands primary school.

WorkBox was asked to update the toilet facilities at St James Primary School, part of the Tudor Grange Academies, within the six week summer break. Bellrock FM commissioned us to completely strip out the existing six toilet blocks including lighting, sinks and flooring and refurbish with new including boxing in of pipework, hygienic wall cladding and new toilets with the addition of electronic hand driers and sanitary accessories.

WorkBox have built a relationship of trust with Tudor Grange and Bellrock after we also completed work at the Samworth Academy in Leicester in summer 2016 on their behalf. This latest project was one of only a select few project approved by Tudor Grange Academy Trust this year as there had been no previous investment for many years prior to TGA Trust taking over the running of the school from the local authority in 2013.

Steven Groutage, Associate Principal, Estates & IT at the Tudor Grange Academies Trust, said they were pleased to WorkBox once again. He said: “For this project our brief was simple, to create modern, clean and sophisticated facilities that we would be proud to provide to our students.”

“As a Trust we demand excellence and WorkBox have certainly been able to meet our high expectations. Throughout the project they were incredibly professional and rigorous, and maintained a clean and safe working environment at all times.”

He added: “Their communication was very clear and no request from us was too small. The standards of their workmanship have been excellent and we are delighted with the end product. WorkBox have met our brief and raised the bar!”

Bellrock Project Manager Andrew Lane said: “Throughout the design, procurement and construction processes of the project, WorkBox successfully managed both the expectations Bellrock Technical Services and TGA Executive Trust.”

He said the Bellrock team, the Head of School and the TGA Executive Trust were all delighted with the end results. He added: “We look forward to working with WorkBox on future projects!”
