Each of the local schools is expected to receive tens, if not hundreds of thousands of pounds to help with repairs

Glazing specialists, Montrose Glass, have commented on the recent news regarding the repair funds being granted to local schools from the Condition Improvement Fund. More than two dozen schools are set to receive a share of the £367 million fund to repair and extend their buildings.

Thirteen schools in Kirklees and 15 in Calderdale have now been named as the beneficiaries of the funding. Each of the local schools is expected to receive tens, if not hundreds of thousands of pounds to help with repairs. The fund criteria includes keeping academy and college buildings safe and in good working order by tackling any poor building conditions, energy efficiency, building compliance and safety issues.

The fund is also hoped to be used to support colleges and academies to expand and increase admissions. The selected schools can choose to use the money for a wide variety of issues from overcrowding to lack of facilities. However, a number of the schools selected require replacement windows or glazing replacement for their buildings. The Mirfield Free Grammar and Sixth Form, Hemondwike Grammar and Bately Grammar and many more have all stated that they need glazing replacement and window repair.

Experts in domestic and commercial glazing, Montrose Glass, take a keen interest in news stories such as this. A spokesperson from the company made the following statement upon hearing the news: “Glazing and window repair is clearly a common issue that many schools struggle with. It is likely that many of the glazing issues and repairs will be due to general wear and tear over time. By utilising the Condition Improvement Fund, these schools will be able to benefit from the heat and energy efficiency that high-quality glazing and windows can bring.

“Window and glazing repairs are often a pressing issue that need to be dealt with as quickly as possible. Once receiving the funding, these schools will want to get their repairs started straight away. The right glazing service should be able to complete the repairs with speed and ease, as well as offering a boarding up service in order to ensure the building is safe and secure. The schools may also need window replacements to be cut on site in order to guarantee that the glass is the perfect fit for the larger sized windows.”
