A number of Suffolk based companies have announced that they have donated their time and expertise in order to assist with the construction & fitout of a new sensory cabin for children with physical disabilities and learning difficulties. The companies giving their time to work on this project includes Apex Roofing, Apex Scaffolding and Bauder Ltd in conjunction with a number of other local companies who have provided scaffolding labour and materials that have been essential to the completion of this project, free of charge.
Director of Apex Roofing, Jackie Biswell has said that the company was proud to step in and help to create this amazing new facility that will be beneficial for so many children. The newly created sensory cabin will bring a lot of joy to children and it is great to see a number of local companies involved in its creation.
The project to create this sensory cabin was led by ISG, who first approached Ipswich-based strategic supply chain partner Bauder Ltd in order to supply the waterproofing material for the new roof. Apex Roofing Anglia Ltd was approached as they are a Bauder approved Contractor in order to supply the labour and sundry materials that would be necessary in order to install a Bauderflex bituminous membrane roofing systems on the new building. Apex Scaffolding Anglia Ltd were also on hand to provide an access staircase and scaffold edge protection around the perimeter to allow the works to be carried out in a safe manner.
The sensory cabin has been created for Thomas Wolsey School, the new cabin was an important part of the school’s development to help their pupils as well as the local community who suffer from sensory impairment. The grant application to create the cabin was initially turned down, however, with the amazing generosity and hard work of the contractors, local businesses and fundraisers, the plans have come to fruition and the cabin has been completed.
