Blackpool & The Fylde College, Cleveleys Building


  • Client: Blackpool and The Fylde College
  • Programme: January 2010 – September 2011
  • Contract Value: £2.4m
  • Scope of Work: Overcladding and replacement windows, and overroofing


The project comprised design and build of an insulated aluminium rainscreen and replacement windows to the seven storey Cleveleys building and adjacent boiler room with local repair, restraint and stabilisation of the existing external fabric. Additional works undertaken included new aluminium glazed screens and doors at ground level and new insulated over-roofing to all roofs.


“Blackpool and The Fylde College are delighted with the transformational change to the seven-storey landmark Cleveleys Building which was completed on time and within budget by d+b facades.

The project was delivered around the normal working operations of a live College site and we were pleased not to have lost any teaching and learning time throughout the entire construction period thanks to d+b’s approach to careful planning.

We hope to undertake future over-cladding projects at the College in forth-coming years and would welcome d+b being part of the project delivery team”.
