Case Study

Woodhouse Grove School

Location: Bradford

Sector: Education

Based in Apperley Bridge, West Yorkshire, Woodhouse Grove provides education for pupils aged 2–18 years. The school is proud of its outstanding facilities, including its boarding accommodation. With its excellent reputation in Yorkshire and beyond, the school aims to unlock the potential of each child within a supportive environment.

The Brief

With over 700 pupils, including a mix of day pupils and boarders, it’s essential that Woodhouse Grove maintains a safe and comfortable environment for all children and staff – day and night. For Bensons, this means ensuring all gas equipment, including heating appliances and boilers are always working efficiently and safely

The Solution

To support the safety and wellbeing of everyone at Woodhouse Grove, Bensons provides a range of commercial gas engineering services. This includes the supply of commercial gas appliances and gas maintenance for the main school as well as for the multiple plant rooms, boarding facilities and the caretaker’s house. 

Bensons’ services to Woodhouse Grove include: 

Commercial gas site survey and planning: Bensons made an initial visit to the school to conduct a free site survey, allowing them to create a detailed service schedule, covering all commercial gas services and gas heating requirements.

The maintenance of a broad range of commercial gas appliances: From radiant tube heaters in the sports hall to gas cookers in the boarding houses, Bensons’ gas engineers ensure Woodhouse Grove’s commercial gas appliances are safe and efficient. With Bensons’ dedicated service, the school benefits from a one-stop service for all their commercial gas engineering needs.

Testing and compliance: Bensons regularly tests all of Woodhouse Grove’s commercial gas appliances to ensure they’re fully compliant with the latest industry legislation. In addition, Bensons also supplies landlord certificates for the properties which require them.

The Results

Working closely with Woodhouse Grove’s building management team, Bensons has been keeping Woodhouse Grove School warm and safe since 2007.

What Did the Client Think?

We’ve been working with Bensons since 2007. Bensons’ engineers are highly qualified and have the ability to work across a broad range of gas appliances. This gives us peace of mind that our school is safe and warm for pupils and staff. We’re delighted with the service and would highly recommend Bensons to others.
