Raymond Brown

The Scheme

Raymond Brown Building have been appointed by Hampshire County Council to refurbish the ROSLA Block. The aim of the works is to improve the appearance and energy efficiency of the building, enhancing the teaching environment.

Works commenced in Oct 2017 and are scheduled to be completed in Aug 2018.








Project Progress

Works are progressing well and we are almost ready to install the new cladding on the South East Elevation.

The removal of the existing cladding will be completed by the middle of February.

Making Sure it’s Right

Think Quality - Get it right first time

WindowsAs part of our Quality Control Procedure we visited the factory where the windows are being manufactured, so we can make sure the windows are to the required standard before they are delivered to site.

This ensures high standards and prevent potential delays to the project.

The Year of Engineering 2018 is a year-long, cross-Government campaign to support the engineering profession in recruiting the next generation of engineers. Aimed at raising the profile of engineering amongst 7 to16 year olds and widening the pool of young people that consider engineering as a career. Throughout 2018, the campaign will showcase the variety and creativity of modern engineering to improve understanding of what engineers do. Partners including Siemens, the Science Museum Group, Ocado, Usborne, BAE Systems and Crossrail have already pledged their support. Teaming up with these and hundreds of other partners, the government will deliver a year of UK-wide school visits, exhibitions and open doors events – all aimed at encouraging young people and their parents to take a closer look at engineering.

The Year of Engineering launches this month. To find out more, visit the Year of Engineering partner website or follow the campaign on Twitter @YoEgovuk.
