The pressures on schools to increase the number of available pupil places has been widely reported in recent years. The predicted shortfall of some 750,000 places presents major challenges to local authorities, headteachers, architects and contractors. How do you rapidly increase the size of a school with an ever decreasing budget? To say creative, reliable solutions are essential is an understatement.
For over 26 years, Eurobrick Systems has supplied its brick slip cladding systems for installation on school expansion and refurbishment projects. In fact, during this time, Eurobrick has supplied its cladding for hundreds of primary and secondary schools across the U.K. As a result, the benefits of Eurobrick’s cladding systems are well known in the industry; they provide a robust, low maintenance brick façade to buildings, with a life span of at least 25 years. Its systems are tried and tested having third party certification from the British Board of Agrément (BBA) and have been installed on a range of school projects including new build, modular construction and retrofit.
Eurobrick’s brick slip cladding offers the finish and durability of traditional masonry but with the benefit of being lightweight, quick and easy to install, both on and off-site. Whatever the application requirement; be it to add an extra storey to an existing building, rejuvenate an ageing exterior, improve the insulation performance, to clad a new extension so that it fits in with the surrounding school or to clad a new modular building in the factory before it’s transported to site, Eurobrick’s systems can deliver.
As experts in this specialised market, Eurobrick is dedicated to supplying quality products and a first rate service.
