John Hamnett, A1 Flue Systems' managing director.
The company has completed a busy summer programme of work installing flue systems at schools, colleges and universities across the UK.
A1 Flue Systems has added the £850,000 summer business boost to figures released earlier this year where it reported securing £1.2m of education.
Managing director, John Hamnett, said that summer is a peak time of business for the company as it’s a good time for schools in particular to get construction or refurbishment projects completed.
Mr Hamnett said: “We’ve had another busy spring and early summer manufacturing systems in the run-up to the school holidays and then getting our installation teams on sites up and down the country fitting flue and chimney systems.
“Although school projects mount up in the run-up to and during the school holidays, we have sufficient capacity within our design, engineering, manufacturing and installation departments to handle this increase.”
The average cost for a project was around £5,000 for a school or college to have a new flue system designed and installed for a boiler system that provides heat and hot water.
The company also recently secured a multi-million pound contract to manufacture nine British-made 100-metre tall chimney systems to be installed inside two of the four iconic chimneys at Battersea Power Station in London.
Mr Hamnett added: “The company delivers the same level of excellence, pride, passion and precision whether it’s for a primary school or a skyscraper.
“We keep learning from every project we complete and continue to accumulate a level of knowledge that we can apply moving forward because for us, every day is a school day.”
