The Project

Having grown a reputation in the education sector, SEH Commercial were pleased to have the opportunity to work on the Centre for Creative Industries at East Kent College in Broadstairs.  East Kent have a number of faculties, and SEH Commercial were also involved in their Folkestone campus.  The main contractor was Walker Construction Ltd and the work was secured via a rigorous tendering process.

Of course, the work doesn’t start here, before every project, SEH Commercial and their design team work to meticulous detail to provide full CAD drawings, including section and installation details.

The scale and scope of this activity was varied, and it perfectly demonstrates SEH Commercial’s ability to conduct a number of disciplines within the same project, including overseeing all manufacturing.  This 360 approach was the ideal solution with a number of existing structures being replaced with new windows, doors and curtain walling. 

Product quality and spec is paramount to every project. SEH Commercial with industry leading products, and this project saw their association with SAPA

As with all new build projects, this replacement programme assumed plastering up to new frame, with standard white and clear external silicone sealant.

Project Management

It’s fair to say, most projects are time sensitive, but none more so than the education sector, where there is usually limited time to carry out the any works.  SEH Commercial, spent xx weeks on the whole project, which included 2 weeks for the survey, 8 weeks on manufacturing and delivery, and a further xx weeks to carry out the installation process.  As you can imagine, it’s imperative that all elements fall into place on time and on schedule.

It’s important that when SEH Commercial complete any works that they leave the site in pristine condition, this includes cleaning and the removal of all debris.

MD’s COMMENTS          

SEH Commercial’s Managing Director Glen Swatman was quick to describe the complexity of this particular project, adding;

“there was a vast amount of value engineering within this project, from the time we tendered to the time windows went into production”. 

Glen went on to say

“many contracts are susceptible to change, it’s therefore important to work closely with our customers to impart our knowledge and experience and hopefully overcome any objections at the outset”.
