Contractor picks Cambridge firm for £33,000 schools insulation contract

September 01 2010

Cambridge company Kershaw Contracting Services has been picked to insulate the roof of a new school building currently being constructed.

The Cottenham firm was selected by Jenner Contractors for the new build at the Sissinghurst Church of England primary school in Kent.

Kershaw Contracting Services will be fitting timber framed loft insulation, a speciality of the company.

The school is moving next year to a new site with a brand new building.

Kershaw Contracting Services’ managing director Ian Macklin said: “This is an impressive new building being constructed for the school, and we are delighted to have been chosen to insulate it.

“High levels of insulation are essential to keep heating costs under control and reduce the impact of the building on the environment.

“This building will be one of the warmest and greenest school buildings in the area.”

The school’s brand new building is due to be completed by the end of February 2011. 

Inside, there will be new IT facilities, a library, a science room and a large hall for indoor games and PE.

Kershaw Contracting Services specialises in fitting insulation for new buildings, new homes and for existing homeowners.

It also fits cavity wall insulation, brand new central heating systems and fitting, and specialises in the safe removal of asbestos.

It is part of the Kershaw Group, which can trace parts of its history back 120 years. It employs 183 people and is well known for its involvement in the community, including being a main shirt sponsor of Cambridge United.
