Pendock column casings help create stylish reception class at Croydon school

Pendock Ltd., the specialists in pipe boxing and column casings were tasked to supply 8 column casing to conceal original reinforced concrete roof supports as part of a major refurbishment contract carried out within a south London primary school. The work at the 900 pupils’ Woodside Academy in Croydon was carried out last summer by Westwise Ltd., a Welling based building company specialising in refurbishment projects for education and other sector clients.

The Project Manager of Westwise, Mr. Huseyin Asim, commented: “This was a high pressure, time constrained contract which had to be completed during last summer’s school holiday period, so we began planning it the previous year. As normal when we secure a large project like this, I call in Pendock at an early stage to carry out a survey, on which to provide a quote and offer advice.

We used the straight and curved column sections supplied by Pendock to conceal the reinforced concrete columns as part of our fit out, which also included a new false ceiling. Everything was completed on time before the start of the new academic year and the school’s authorities were very pleased with the results.”

As the leading manufacturer in the field, Pendock offers a full survey, design, fabrication and supply service for projects across such sectors as healthcare and commercial as well as education. The company is able to produce custom made casings for columns of all sizes while its standard products include pipe boxing and radiator covers.
