The Project

Chorlton High School is a coeducational secondary school with academy status, located in Chorlton-cum-Hardly, Manchester. The school was designated as a Specialist Arts College in 2002 and completely rebuilt, at a cost of over £17 million providing a state-of-the-art facility for students and the local community.

Project Objectives

CHS were looking for a partner that would align themselves to the school’s vision and values. This included creating the right environmental conditions across the classrooms that would allow the staff and pupils to achieve their academic standards of excellence and experience creative teaching and learning.

They were also looking for a maintenance partner that could support them in meeting their sustainability strategy.

The planned, preventative and reactive maintenance services we provide include:

  • Electrical power and distribution
  • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems
  • Mechanical and electrical building services
  • Minor building fabric maintenance
  • Security and fire alarm system maintenance
  • Emergency lighting
  • Car Park lighting
  • Statutory inspection and testing
  • Reactive and emergency repairs

Challenges

Within a learning environment it is essential to carry out maintenance activities outside the school’s curriculum to avoid disrupting students.

Solution

Key Integrated Services have developed a dynamic, flexible maintenance strategy which allows us to constantly adjust the maintenance activities to be carried out, ensuring optimum use of the school’s facilities by students and the local community.

The Results

Key Integrated Services work in partnership with CHS to educated the school community about the need for environmental and sustainability practices, ensuring that we all make a positive impact within the local community. Working in concert with the school, Key Integrated Services developed a bespoke maintenance strategy to optimise learning and minimise disruption within the school’s environment.
