Latest Installer Project - William Ransom Primary School, Hitchin

25th May 2017

Approved Installers ML Brickwork Southern recently completed the installation of brick slip cladding to the new classroom block at William Ransom Primary School, towards the end of last year.

The primary school was undertaking an extensive refurbishment and extension project including this new modular built classroom block as part of its expansion programme to accommodate 60 new reception places.

The new building was constructed off-site, in sections, before being transported to the school. In this instance, the brick slip cladding was installed once the building had been positioned on site.

ML Brickwork fitted around 100m² of the 17mm thick X-Clad system. The thinnest panel was used as the frame of the new building contained sufficient insulation and additional insulation was not required from the cladding. Smooth Anthracite brick slips from our Britannia Range were chosen and were pointed using Light Grey Europoint mortar. The brickwork provided an interesting contrast to the Trespa cladding panels, whilst the smooth nature of the brick slips complemented the overall effect of modern clean lines.

ML Brickwork Southern has been an approved installer for 6 years although we have previously worked with its managing director, Matt Lear, since 2008. ML Brickwork is an experienced installer of our systems and work on both commercial and residential developments around the country.
