Greater efficiency, lower costs and improved learning environments were among the many benefits achieved by using our Gebrik system to refurbish Hampshire County Council’s prefabricated school buildings.This major, ongoing project demanded swift build times, phased working and minimal disruption so by using Gebrik to clad the existing frames, the Council achieved an improvement to external aesthetics and internal space whilst reducing heating and maintenance costs.The steel frame structures remained sound but the original buildings’ large windows and inefficient wall construction led to a full refurbishment of the façade. To minimise the build cost and programme, the existing structural frame and foundations were retained with Gebrik considered the best option for the brick cladding to provide a contemporary design.
