Danetree Junior School in West Ewell, Surrey is one of two founder members of “GLF Schools”, a Multi-Academy Trust set up in 2012 in partnership with Glyn School, forming the first cross-phase Academy Trust in Surrey. Baily Garner’s ongoing involvement with Glyn School was a strong foundation for Danetree Junior School to appoint our M&E Consultants and Contract Administrators to assist with their proposed improvement and upgrade works.
With our assistance, a successful bid for funding from the DOE Condition Improvement Fund enabled the first phase of works to commence, including fire precautionary upgrade works, replacing classroom doors, installing fire rated glazed compartmentation and early warning detection, together with renewal of communal floor finishes and associated asbestos removal. A second phase of programmed works, carried out under an accelerated programme over the summer, upgraded existing mechanical and electrical systems throughout the whole building, replacing heating, power and lighting services and resulting in a reduction to the school’s energy bills and CO2 production.
Baily Garner continue to work with GLF schools to deliver their long term improvement/expansion plans.
