On top of the planned renovation, MILA were asked to carry out repairs to a leaking atrium roof and to convert a series of manual winding gears to electric openers. Working in conjunction with a specialist scaffolding company these jobs were also carried out during the college holidays.
The total cost of carrying out this remarkable restoration? An equally remarkable £78,600, providing the College with a cost effective solution to their problem. MILA calculated that the whole job could be completed during college holidays, a much shorter time-scale than other options, virtually eliminating any disruption to staff and students. Not surprisingly, Pembrokeshire College were delighted to ask MILA to carry out the work, following a successful tender. Throughout the project, MILA worked closely with the client, even designing and manufacturing a customised part to restrict the opening of the windows (students tended to interfere with the retro fitted restrictors causing them to break). The aluminium stop block was installed inside each window channel, and it did the job perfectly. To minimise disturbance, and to eliminate the expense of erecting external scaffolding, the entire refurbishment was carried out from inside the building.
