FAKRO Electro roof windows for Essex Academy

Two new timber buildings at Ockendon Academy have seen 53 FAKRO Electro roof windows with blinds installed, 16 in the 7-classroom English block and 37 in the larger ‘Ockendon Studio School’, a self-contained 6th form facility for year 12 and 13 students. Cabinco, which specialises in the construction of sustainable school buildings, was main contractor for both projects.

Director Simon Lawrence explained:

“We had specific technical issues to address including a requirement for wall operated electrical operation. We also received the support of FAKRO’s technical team to produce flashing details specific to the roof construction”.
