LRCs, Blackburn, Blackpool and Preston
At Whitespace we have gained considerable experience in the refurbishment of schools, high schools and higher education establishments across the North West including Blackburn, Blackpool and Preston.
We are seeing a huge rise in the introduction of Learning Resource Centres (LRCs) into our schools and colleges. Students are accessing information in new ways – via laptops, tablets, smartphones as well as the more traditional desktop computers, books and magazines.
The design, layout and furniture which are included in Learning Resource Centres are key to their success. LRCs need to be areas where students want to visit (and more importantly use), where they can use both traditional and modern means to access information, relax and learn.
In order to create these multi-functional spaces we take time to understand the different ways students interact both in study and socially.
A successful Learning Resource Centre should be divided into zones – quiet areas for individual work and group spaces for social interaction and teamwork. The furniture should support different styles of working; standard and/or bespoke desking, modular tables and a variety of seating for flexibility. There should also be adequate storage to hold a variety of media and access to a variety of IT facilities.
Whitespace can take care of the whole project from floor to ceiling and everything in between.
Our scope of works include:
- Full building surveys
- Interior design
- Storage audit of existing usage (and how it can convert into better solutions)
- Extensive in-house space planning expertise, providing plans, visualizations and panorama views
- Full fit out: ceilings, lighting, air conditioning, partitions, decoration, flooring, signage.
- All furniture (standard and bespoke)
- One point of contact throughout, saving time and money
- Nationwide coverage
Whether your pupils are working solo, in small groups or whole classes, we are confident that we can deliver an engaging environment that inspires.
