Nolan and Kier Work to Refurbish Carmarthenshire School

09 September 11

Nolan Commercial, the commercial division of Carmarthen-based Nolan Windows, has been contracted by leading construction company Kier Western to carry out refurbishment works to parts of Maes Yr Yrfa School in Cefneithin.

The scope of the works being carried out includes replacement aluminium curtain walling to a wing of the school as part of a large-scale refurbishment project in the Dinefwr area of Carmarthenshire.

Commenting on being awarded the project and the works currently under way at the school, Chris Hughes from Nolan Commercial said:

"We'll be replacing the curtain walling almost like-for-like so in the most part it will be aesthetically similar to the original.

"The most notable differences will be louvers above the clear glazing on the ground and first floors running end to end of the north and south elevations, and the replacement of aluminium panelling with Pilkington spandrel glass. The louvers will conceal internal ventilation systems, which will be linked electrically to a central control unit and boast super-low energy consumption.

"The aluminium (both inside the mullions and around them) will be acoustically treated to lessen 'flanking' (travelling of sound indirectly between parts of the building)."

The Secured by Design project worth £400,000 is due for completion at the end of January 2012.

The improvement works at the Maes Yr Yrfa site are being supported financially by the Welsh Government to support Carmarthen County Council's far-reaching Modernising Education Programme (MEP).
