We are pleased to announce that we have won a substantial contract, worth approximately £1.2 million, to aid work on a new ‘super school’ in Baglan, Port Talbot.
The contract is for a package that includes new windows, doors, and Curtain Walling at the £40 million development. The main contractor is Bouygues UK.
The school is to be built on the Western Avenue playing fields opposite the Seaway Parade, Sandfields. Work has already started to prepare the site, and the school is set to open in September 2016.
The new school will cater for children aged three to 16, and will replace Cwrt Sart Community School, Glanafan Comprehensive School, Sandfields Comprehensive School and Traethmelyn Primary School.
It will accommodate 1100 secondary school pupils, 300 primary school pupils and, 100 specialist places for pupils with additional learning needs will be available.
Alan Brayley, Managing Director of AB Glass, said:
“We are really pleased to be providing the windows, doors, and Curtain Walling package on the new school in Baglan Bay. This is a fantastic project that will ultimately make a big difference to the surrounding area. We beat off some stiff competition to win this contract and it is fantastic to be working on a local scheme that will make a difference to so many people for so many years to come.
“I would like to thank Bouygues UK, for appointing AB Glass as subcontractors for the projects, and we look forward to working with them all over the coming months.”
