Standing room only in class?
Posted On: 08/09/2015 | In the Category: News
With the new school term upon us, all the intelligence suggests that many schools are going to be seeing a real influx of additional pupil numbers not just this year but in the years to come.
Whilst some schools will have capacity, we are already receiving enquiries about additional classroom furniture and more detailed space planning for those schools that will be facing real space challenges in the future.
At Whitespace we believe that the design of the teaching environment should encourage and inspire; it should include a flexible layout with ‘fit for purpose’ furniture.
We appreciate that design, space planning and choosing the right furniture for your school can be a little overwhelming to the inexperienced – that’s where we come in.
Students and staff should be able to move around the room safely and comfortably. The furniture should be highly durable and take into consideration the age range of the students, as well as being suited to the subject being taught.
In addition to providing desks and chairs, provision for storage should also be taken into account.
We offer a full turnkey service for education sector refurbishments, covering everything from full building surveys, space planning, interior design and fit-out to the supply and installation of standard and bespoke education furniture.
So if your school is suffering growing pains, we’d be delighted to discuss how we can help you accommodate new intakes in the coming months and years.
