CDW Systems and Alfram go back to school with sixth form transformation

CDW Systems, the Gloucester-based aluminium fabricator is celebrating with one of their longstanding customers, following the successful transformation of a local sixth form centre.

The trade and commercial fabricator joined forces with respected commercial installer Alfram Limited to help refurbish the Sixth Form Centre of Excellence at Cleeve School. With the brief of creating an eye-catching, yet practical learning space, CDW Systems manufactured and supplied a full suite of glazing products from Sapa: Technal.

As part of the project, the team at CDW supplied Elegance 52 curtain walling, Dualframe 75mm windows and STII commercial doors. The school in Bishops Cleeve, which is just outside Cheltenham, is the latest in a long line of successful projects completed by the two proud Gloucester-based companies.

Chris Beacham, Director at Alfram comments: “When we were asked to help with the redevelopment of the sixth form centre at Cleeve School, we knew there was only one supplier to call. We spoke with CDW Systems and explained the project requirements and between us specified a fantastic collection of glazing products.

“We’re really grateful for the continued support of CDW Systems, helping us to not only meet the project requirements but deliver a quality finished product. We have been able to develop a proven track record across the region as a reliable and professional commercial installer. The backing of our longstanding supply partner CDW Systems has undoubtedly helped us achieve this.”

Richard Smith, Technical Director at CDW Systems adds: “We’re really fortunate to work with some fantastic companies and Chris and the team at Alfram are no exception. We were delighted to help a local partner complete a great project right on our doorstep.

“As expected, the Alfram team did a tremendous job at the school’s sixth form centre, and we must congratulate them on another successful installation. We take great pride in being able to support our trade and commercial customers across the country, helping them to complete a broad range of installations. Alfram’s successful portfolio truly embodies that.”
