About Mark Holdsworth

Having previously worked for a major trade supplier in the construction industry where he started his career as a trade counter assistant, Mark progressed to a technical support specialist and as a company representative for 12 years. Mark enjoys building relationships with clients, whilst promoting and delivering quality products and services to customers.

Milton Court Academy’s ongoing refurbishment works are moving along at an impressive pace. The project to upgrade the 1840s building started in the summer and will continue until Easter. Some of the areas that are being upgraded are; the heating system, toilet refurbishment, perimeter fencing and new aluminium windows. A major area of the works is classroom refurbishment. The classrooms are getting a makeover which includes plastering the walls and decoration. Lower suspended ceilings will give a fresh modern look and reduce heating costs. Additionally, carpets are being laid and aluminium, double glazed, windows are being installed where needed.

New areas are being reconfigurated to provide better teaching areas and facilities such as a larger reception area and improved toilet layouts. These subtle changes will improve the school’s working enviroment but also ensure that the character of the building remains.

We look forward to continuing with this project and working with the staff at Milton Court Primary Academy.

Waller Christmas Do

Waller Christmas Do

Christmas has been and gone and it was my second at Waller World. I had a fantastic Christmas which was started on the last day of work with the Waller Christmas Do, and what a do it was! We started at Bar Wars and had the annual Secret Santa, I recieved some great PJ’s and a Miami Dolphins keyring from Santa.

The Main Event

After having lunch we were wisked off to Canterbury and to the Maiden’s Head pub where we had a couple of drinky poos and a bite to eat. Almost before I had finished my drink we were off again, this time to the nearby escape rooms – Escape Kent where we had to escape from a science fiction themed room. Heroically, we managed to save the planet! As a reward for such swashbuckling stuff, we then went into town to browse the winter market. This was followed by further drinks at a magic themed pub and then onto a fantastic meal at Ambrette restaurant. The food was completely different to what I would normally eat but I enjoyed it. The fun was completed by heading back to Sittingbourne where we partied the night away.

Thank you Steve for the best Christmas do ever!

The New Year

After working at Waller Services for almost two years, I continue to learn something new. Working alongside my colleague Leanne in Admin who helps me tackle my day-to-day tasks as well as the ongoing Optivo windows and doors contract. We ensure that we stay up to date with the works and keeping our clients and their residents happy.

Again, both myself and Paul our glazing manager have found last year to be overall challenging and enjoyable and we are looking forward to the this year and whatever it may bring.

My first Six Months

My First Six Months

Hi, my name is Leanne Smith and I have worked at Wallers since June of last year. Here are some snippets of my first six months.

It has been a very varied and interesting six months. I returned to work after two years off with my little boy and the transition has been extremley smooth, thanks to the great staff at Wallers. I have taken on the role of Senior Office Administrator and it is very varied with no two days being the same.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with some great clients since I started. Additionally, I have recently started a facilities management course which I hope will help myself and Wallers to provide facilities management to a very high standard. This should create a great service for all of our clients, now and in the future.

The company has a great family feel which is lovely to be a part of. I am very much looking forward to continuing to work for Wallers.

Waller Family

Waller Family

My name is Rees Murton and I am the newest member of the Waller family. I joined Waller Associates in September 2018, and have been at the company for two months now. Leaving college and taking this role was a huge step for me but the Waller family have accepted me with open arms and have welcomed me into the company.

I must admit, that at first I was extremely nervous about the amount of responsibility that I was going to have on my shoulders. However the help and support from all of my new colleagues makes life so much easier. The close bond between everyone at Waller is extremely important. The company’s slogan, “Building on trust”, is a very important factor within the team. Without the trust within the company, there could be a lot of issues. This trust brings everyone closer together and we work more as a family and this makes for a better team.

I have settled in very well and enjoy working alongside both Andy and Steve, taking notes and learning the Waller way. It is my wish to continue to learn here and in the future become a charted contracts manager for Waller Associates.

I cannot wait to learn more!

Rees

School Holiday Period Works

We are now in the middle of another school holiday period works program. In addition, the works are full steam ahead at Sittingbourne Community College! For me this means the start of a new challenging project that I’m able to assist with. I have thoroughly enjoyed carrying out the initial survey and drafting construction drawings ready to provide a tender for the scope of works involved with the E Block Refurbishments. This has been the one of the largest projects that I have been involved with during tendering. Assisting with all the processes from the survey to providing a Bill of Quantities all the way through to the submission of the tender. I look forward to monitoring the progression of the refurbishment and will return with an update in due course.

Milton Court Academy Refurbishment Project

Waller Building and Glazing Services has started work on this million pound Milton Court Academy refurbishment project in Sittingbourne, Kent. The works began during the summer holidays in 2018. Renovation of the school was REAch2 Academy Trust’s chosen option rather than demolition. This is decision that has saved the trust millions of pounds and ensured that a fantastic, historic building has not been lost forever.

A Historic School

Formerly known as The Butts, the school was originally built in 1848. With an increasing demand for local school places, an additional building was constructed 50 years later in 1898. This was to become the boy’s school.  During this period the two buildings were separated into girls and boys schools. At the time, the two buildings certainly added to the rich architectural heritage of the era and the historic growing village of Milton Regis.

Steeped in history, the school was on the same site as the Milton workhouse. It was from the workhouse that resident children would attend the school with other local children. One of the school’s many intriguing features is a bell tower that is accessed by a spiral staircase. Additionally, a WW1 memorial feared lost was found after being put into storage. It had previously been discarded into a skip by builders and had to be rescued by a school caretaker. The memorial was “In Grateful Memory of the Old Boys of Milton Regis Schools Who Gave Their Lives in the Great War 1914-18”. This wonderful memorial has been fully restored and now holds pride of place in one of the school halls.

Legend has it that there are also a series of tunnels running under the school which were used by gangs of smugglers. In days of old the tunnels led from the local creek to nearby inns along the high street.

A new chapter for this ever evolving school is about to be written. What new tales will be uncovered and told to future generations?

Refurbishment

The school building reflects such a rich and fascinating past and the challenge is to adapt it to cope with the demands of modern learning without losing its character and charm. With high vaulted ceilings and large wooden single glazed windows thermal efficiency is poor, resulting in high heating costs for the school. Internally, new suspended ceilings will be installed to give a modern look and will reduce high heating costs. Additionally, new aluminium double glazed windows and doors will be fitted which vastly improve the thermal efficiency of the buildings as well as increasing security. Six classrooms will be completely refurbished with each classroom being plastered and decorated in vibrant colours to create a modern learning environment. New blue aluminium doors are being fitted to match other areas of the school which will complement the school colours.

New Reception and Heating System

A new glazed reception will also be added which will add light and provide more office space for staff. The addition of a canopy will provide a covered area for parents to wait for their children. Also receiving a full makeover is the staffroom, school offices and toilet blocks.

As well as the refurbishment works, Wallers are installing a new central heating system throughout the school. This will reduce the heating costs due to the modern system being installed and will improve the overall thermal efficiency. Waller Associates is very proud to be appointed for this local project. We are looking forward to working with REAch2 Academy Trust and Milton Court Primary Academy.

Will Anyone Read This Blog?

The question is, will anyone read this blog? I do have my doubts, however it seems that everyone is saying that social media is the way forward! I’ve even been on a course and the rather enthusiastic tutor made the online world sound quite convincing. It has to be said that I am somewhat of a dinasour when it comes to social media and technology as a whole but as the sales and marketing guy I should be embracing it, right? So lets give it a bash.

Make it short

Studies have shown that people can concentrate longer by reading from the written page than back lit appliances, so short is best. I have a mate called Eahmon who is short and most people like him, so maybe there’s and ounce of truth there. People will get bored if it’s too long.

Is It Interesting?

I’m led to believe that if it’s not interesting people won’t want to read it. It doesn’t have to be work related all of the time. I’m not overly confident that people will be interested my worldly views but lets give it a go.

Give Tips, Hints and How To’s

People are interested in tips on how to do things. As a building company, I will pass this onto the experts to provide their knowlege for future, fact based interesting blogging.

Social Media

Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter are social media heavyweights but are people interested in a building and glazing company?

We are trying to keep up with an ever changing world, a world in which we never imagined would happen. What would Shakespeare think of it all?

If anyone reads this blog, please let me know by emailing me Read It to mark@wallerservices.com and change my world!

School Replacement Window Project Nearing Completion

School Replacement Window Project Nearing Completion

We are pleased with this school replacement window project nearing completion. We have completed 75% of the window installation project at Tymberwood Academy in Gravesend, Kent. The new windows are looking great! The completed project will mean that the whole school will be double glazed. The original Crittal windows are being replaced which will vastly improve the look of the school. Additionally the new windows also mean that the school will save money due to increased thermal effiency. As well as new windows, blue infill panels are being installed to match the current  school colours.

Waller Christmas Do

Summer Works

The school holidays are fast approaching and it’s time for preparation and planning for all of the summer works that will be carried out during this period.

We have much to do! We need to order skips, toilets/welfare and materials. Additionally, we have book in the labour in advance which means we will be ready and this prevents poor service. We pride ourselves at being the best at programming the large amounts of work in for the summer season.

Working with experienced colleagues, I can see this can be quite stressful at times but their knowledge has shown me how to deal with these demanding tasks. It is important that we meet deadlines and timescales demanded by our clients.

All in all I’m looking forward to this busy period and this is my second time experiencing the summer rush. I’m ready for the challenge ahead!

Roll on Christmas! I love Christmas
