Back to school for A1 Flues


A1 Flue Systems has completed a raft of projects totalling £850,000 in a frantic six-week period installing flue and chimney systems during the school summer holidays. The Ollerton-based company –


which is the UK market leader in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of commercial and industrial chimney, flue and exhaust systems – has completed a busy summer programme of work installing flue systems at schools, colleges and universities across the UK. A1 Flues has added the


£850,000 summer business boost to figures released earlier this year where it reported securing £1.2m of education projects – taking the total to more than £2m for the past 12 months. Managing Director John Hamnett


said that A1 Flues goes into overdrive during the summer holiday period, as that’s a good time for schools in particular to get construction or refurbishment projects completed.


“We’ve had another busy spring


and early summer manufacturing systems in the run-up to the school holidays and then getting our installation teams on sites up and down the country. We work closely with a host of construction firms and facilities management companies, so A1 Flue Systems is very often specified on both new-build and refurbishment projects – which is why we secure so many projects in the education sector, where there are defined times of the year when work can be carried out.” A1 Flues’ work in the education


sector forms part of what the company calls its ‘bread and butter’ projects, which also include hotels, office blocks and public buildings. Although these are the lifeblood of the business, it’s the high-profile projects that grab the headlines. Recently, the firm secured a multi- million-pound contract to manufacture nine British-made 100m-tall chimney systems to be installed inside two of the four iconic chimneys at Battersea Power Station in London.


New A1 Flues MD, John Hamnett


John Hamnett, who was recently


appointed as the company’s new Managing Director, added that the company delivers the same level of excellence, pride, passion and precision whether it’s for a primary school or a skyscraper. “A1 Flues has become the UK


centre of excellence for the design, manufacture, installation and


maintenance of commercial chimney systems – and this is all due to the expertise and experience of the 140- strong team of people at A1 Flues. We keep learning from every project we complete and continue to accumulate a level of knowledge that we can apply moving forward because for us, every day is a school day.”
