Multi-Building Gutter Cleaning for Oundle School


The Client

Oundle School is a public boarding and day school for girls and boys, situated in the market town of Oundle, Northamptonshire. The town and the school have formed part of the same community for over 450 years, with many of the school’s buildings spread across the town.

The school boasts a multitude of facilities including a chapel, library, swimming pool, theatre, tennis courts, boarding houses, and a great hall amongst their many other school buildings with origins that date back to the 17th century.

The Brief

Heightsafe were instructed to devise a comprehensive gutter cleaning plan, following the compliance testing services our team have provided previously for the school to inspect their Roof Access and Work at Height Systems. The school has over 35 buildings with varying access requirements and designs.

The works needed to be completed out of term time when students would not be on site due to the access requirements to certain buildings.

The Solution

Heightsafe planned and executed the gutter cleaning and maintenance of all buildings on the school’s campus, detailing specific access requirements which varied from the use of a cherry picker, a Mobile Elevating Work Platform, and utilising the existing eyebolts and safety lines.

Different methods of cleaning were utilised for each building also, varying from traditional gutter cleaning methods to the use of a sky vac system, with all waste was disposed of by our team.

The Outcome

Heightsafe’s team completed all works safely and efficiently while working closely with the school’s facilities contact to arrange attendance across the site. The school can now be confident in the knowledge all gutter systems are clean and free of debris meaning there will be no additional repair costs for gutters that are left unattended. Heightsafe’s team will attend Oundle School annually as part of our planned property maintenance services, in addition to completing the compliance testing for the site’s mansafe systems.
