Cardiff-based fabricator Dudley’s Aluminium has secured three projects in the education sector across the UK. The first is set to be St Ederyn’s School in Cardiff. As the new home for St Mellons Church in Wales Primary School, St Ederyn’s aims to provide pupils and staff with a modern, state-of-the-art learning environment when complete.

For the St Ederyn’s project, staff of Dudley’s Aluminium are to be working with staff of Halsall Construction, to install Metal Technology System’s capped curtain walling, ‘Hi’ windows and ‘Hi’ doors, in addition to automatic entrance doors and automatic opening windows. Metal Technology System products are also set to be used on the fabricator’s second build, as part of refurbishment works at Lord Williams’s School in Thame, Oxfordshire.

Teaming up with workers for Borras Construction, staff of Dudley’s Aluminium are set to install Metal Technology System’s capped curtain walling, Hi’ windows, ‘Hi’ doors and brise soleil on the new English block and accessible ICT suite of this second project. For the third project, staff of Dudley’s Aluminium are set to work with counterparts at Willmott Dixon Construction on the expansion of Baytree SEN School in Clevedon, Somerset. It is the only school in North Somerset designated to provide education to children with profound and complex learning difficulties.

The new site is to create additional school places and has been designed to be sustainable and energy efficient. For this project, the fabricator is set to install Kawneer capped curtain walling, windows and manual doors, as well as automatic entrance doors. Colin Shorney, managing director at Dudley’s Aluminium, said: “It is a great privilege to be working on these three schools, helping to meet local demand for quality learning environments and opportunities for students across the UK.”
