As children prepare to head back to the classroom, the school term is drawing to a close for Sheffield roofing specialists, Martin-Brooks.
While teachers and pupils enjoy the summer break, Martin-Brooks is hard at work ensuring schools across the country are in tip top condition for the year ahead.
The firm’s expert roofers have tackled nine school projects in the last six weeks, five of which are in South Yorkshire and range from the completion of a new pitched roof at Wales Primary School in Rotherham to repair works at Stannington Infant School, Sheffield. New pitched and flat roofs were also installed at schools in Chesterfield, Pontefract, Nottinghamshire and Rugby.
Martin-Brooks director, Nick Brooks, said: “It makes sense for schools to carry out major repair works during the holidays because there are fewer practical and safety issues. As a result, the summer break is always frantic for us and keeps our workforce at full capacity for the entire six weeks. Every project brings with it a different set of challenges and the team deserves top marks for the skill and efficiency they have demonstrated once again this year.”
An excellent relationship with the education sector sees Martin-Brooks undertake a range of work, from minor repairs to full roof refurbishment, directly for schools or as part of the Building Schools for the Future scheme. In addition, Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checks are carried out on all management and site operatives to demonstrate they are suitable to work around children and vulnerable adults.
