Leicestershire County Council asked us to design, manufacture and install a 27 bay, 790m2 two storey classroom facility. The internal space divided into six classrooms, toilets on both floors, group rooms, storage space, cupboards, circulation space, stairs and a lift.
The building was clad externally with trespa panelling and brick slip, blending the building in with traditional builds but also adding a modern aesthetic with the coloured panels. Powder coated aluminium windows and doors were also used. The second floor overhung the first to add more interest to the unusually shaped building.
Internally we had painted plasterboard walls, suspended ceilings and a variety of different floor finishes.
Half way through the manufacture of the buildings our client decided that they wanted to introduce a sprinkler system and gave us a late instruction to do so.
We liaised with our M&E contractors and the sprinkler supplier, using our designs to check clash detection and re-coordinate how the suppliers were completing works on the bays.
Once they were all organised the sprinkler was fitted fine and our quick, reactive response to the change meant we didn’t add any delays to the programme.
"This is the second two storey school block using the Ideal system that I have been involved with. Again I was pleased at how well the build turned out."
Overall Satisfaction: Very Good
