Aluminium manufacturing and installation company AB Glass has been appointed by Kier Construction to carry out works at a new school development based in Cwmbran.
The £30m redevelopment of Croesyceiliog School will accommodate 1200 pupils aged 11 to 16 and is linked to the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools programme.
Swansea-based AB Glass will manufacture and install a range of aluminium systems for the project, starting this month.
Alan Brayley, managing director of AB Glass, said: “The education sector is a significant area of business for AB Glass and we are pleased to be adding to our portfolio with the Croesyceiliog School development. This project also showcases our continuing relationship with Kier Construction, with AB Glass having secured a number of contracts with this leading construction company.
“We are keen to get started on this project imminently and look forward to seeing the development taking shape.”
AB Glass has already delivered many projects within the education sector, particularly in Wales.
In addition to being contracted for the Croesyceiliog School project, the company has also provided its services to Swansea University’s Bay Campus; Briton Ferry School, Neath Port Talbot; Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera, Neath Port Talbot; Ysgol Bae Baglan, Neath Port Talbot; and the new University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) campus being developed in Swansea Waterfront.
