ICT suites Skelmersdale
A new ICT suite in a school or college can be a substantial investment. Whether a new build or the refurbishment of an existing classroom, the layout and furniture are just as important as the equipment it holds.
Research shows that by improving the learning environment a positive effect on morale and the performance of both students and staff can be achieved. By turning an otherwise dull looking, dated area into a modern innovative learning environment, a place is created where students actually want to learn.
At Whitespace we have gained considerable experience in the refurbishment of schools, high schools and higher education establishments. We have worked closely with schools and colleges across the North West, including Skelmersdale, Wigan, St Helens, Widnes, Runcorn, and Chester, using our skills to design, plan and deliver ICT Suites that make the most of the space available, creating ideal learning and teaching environments.
At the beginning of the project we take time to talk to you, to evaluate the space, and understand whether the area is purely dedicated to IT or is it more beneficial to have a flexible space which can be used for a variety of teaching styles and subjects.
Just as technology evolves we believe the learning environment should do the same to accommodate this.
Other aspects we take into consideration when planning ICT suites;
- ICT Suites in schools should be practical, uncluttered and well equipped to keep pace with emerging technologies.
- The area should also be comfortable and secure.
- The layout is very important, accommodating equipment and storage.
- We focus on addressing the specific needs of this technology based learning environment, the need to control glare, desk height, seating, monitor and keyboard positioning.
- If we can’t find the right ‘off-the-shelf’ products, we are experienced in designing and installing bespoke furniture to provide optimum flexibility for individual and group study.
- Flooring, ceilings, lighting, ventilation and noise levels all contribute to creating a unique design scheme to meet all your requirements.
