The Royal School Wolverhampton
The Royal School, Wolverhampton is a co-educational free school and sixth form for day and boarding pupils in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England. It is the only state school of its type in the UK to have a Royal Charter and it has been a free school since September 2016. The school was previously a fee-paying independent school and it is now one of a handful of state boarding
schools in the country.
What Problems Did These Schools Face?
Both these schools have facilities dating back hundreds of years and maintaining them is a challenging and delicate task. Both schools had not cleaned their gutters for many years and debris, leaves, soil and slipped roof tiles had built up in the gutter causing them to be blocked. As a result, rainwater was overflowing the gutters causing damage elsewhere on the property. In addition, access to the gutters of the school could not be reached from the floor and due to the historic nature of the buildings, it was difficult to get equipment in place.
How Did Prime Facility Services Help?
Prime Facility Services were approached to help both schools separately. Following a detailed site survey, Prime Facility Services’ skilled and experienced staff drew up specific risk assessments and method statements to ensure the gutters could be cleaned safely, efficiently and with no damage to the fabric of these historic buildings. Purchase orders were raised, and the works were
completed with no injuries/near misses, on time and on budget.
We were delighted to be chosen by these local prestigious schools to clean and maintain their gutters and despite the difficult access our teams responded well and got the works delivered safely and efficiently.”
