Bespoke Doorsets Supplied to Nelson & Colne College

Posted by Stephen Waddicor on 8 December 2014

Bespoke Complete Services have, in close collaboration with our client Barnfield Construction, produced and delivered in excess of 180 pre-hung doors sets and glazed screens as part of a 20m refurbishment programme at Nelson & Colne College. All of the bespoke fire doors and screens are now installed and fully operational, providing a safe, robust and highly-functional working environment for more than 1,500 full-time and up to 5,000 part-time students from the surrounding areas.

Nelson & Colne College was created in a shake-up of educational establishments in the 1970s and comprised several local sixth form classes. The college, through its growing reputation for success, has continued to increase in size and now offers a full complement of courses from GCSEs to National Diplomas and NVQs, as well as working closely with local businesses to create and monitor apprenticeship and trainee positions.

Barnfield Construction are one of the market-leading contractors offering a full range of construction and refurbishment services. Since 1976, when the company was established, Barnfield Construction have consistently delivered professional quality solutions for commercial, leisure, residential and industrial schemes alike. In order to maintain their impressive reputation, Barnfield Construction work with only the best product and service providers, among which BCS are proud to number.

All of our bespoke doors used in the refurbishment and reconstruction of Nelson & Colne College were created from quality American White Oak before being finished with a professional-grade veneer and coated twice with UV lacquer. Produced to satisfy the requirements of FD30, FD60 and 35dB acoustic performance specifications, many of the doors featured factory-glazed vision panels in a soft- and hardwood FR60 frame system; matching cloaking beads and loose planted stops completed these quality frames.

The bespoke doors were supplied pre-hung on class 13 s/s hinges to facilitate quick, simple and reliable installation. Matching hardwood screens were also provided in order to continue the sleek, modern aesthetic of the new college premises.

BCS were easily able to meet the tough logistical demands of such a large-scale project, ensuring that all doors were delivered exactly as requested and with strict adherence to punctuality. We will remain in contact with the various representatives of the companies and bodies involved with the Nelson & Colne College project, offering our dedicated aftercare service,
