Ahmarra supply doorsets and glazed screens to England's first "new" grammar school in Kent
Posted by Ahmarra on 12th October 2017
Main contractor: Willmott Dixon
Ahmarra working in collaboration with Willmott Dixon is proud to have supplied internal fire doors and screens to the new ‘Weald of Kent’ Grammar School annexe in Sevenoaks, Kent.
Ahmarra's range of high performance, timber doorsets were specified throughout in a crown cut American white ash veneer with painted frames. All materials supplied were FSC certified and a range of fire and acoustics ratings were achieved to meet the school’s requirements.
Ahmarra also supplied doorsets to the Trinity Free School, which shares the same site facilities as the grammar school. This school opened in September 2016.
'We are honoured to have been selected to supply our products on this landmark scheme, the partnership with Willmott Dixon and collaborative working methods have really helped to deliver the doorsets on this project successfully.' said Martyn Fennell, Ahmarra’s Business Development Manager.
The new grammar school is a £19m annexe in Sevenoaks, 10 miles from its main site with room for 450 pupils. Its teaching facilities include specialist science, art & design spaces, drama & dance spaces, plus a new performance hall, a lecture theatre, large library and dining spaces.
Ahmarra’s many years' experience of manufacturing doors within the education sector has led them to develop a range of made-to-order doorsets tailored to meet the requirements of schools, colleges and universities, with the aim of making the entire process as simple and practical as possible.
'Our Education Range has generated a great deal of interest from architects and contractors in this sector, who appreciate a more simplified process, ' said Martyn Fennell.
Ahmarra is currently manufacturing fire doors for a number of school projects and the Sales and Estimating team are also working closely with architects and contractors who wish to specify the ‘Education Range’ for future school projects.
As one of the UK's leading manufacturers of made to order doorset solutions, Ahmarra has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the education sector.
