A London-based Infants and Juniors School has benefited from a major building programme which included enlarged classrooms, a computer suite, purpose built kitchens, refurbished play spaces and cloakroom areas.
David Bailey Furniture Systems provided fitted furniture for the school refit to the value of £32,000.
The school chose furniture from David Bailey’s highly durable Education range, which has been specially designed to meet the everyday needs of educational establishments.
Products supplied by the school furniture manufacturer included base units, base tray units, wall units, open units and shelving. All cupboard doors were hung on high-quality, durable metal hinges, which have been designed to help prevent children trapping their fingers in cupboard doors. Yellow, red, and silver type ‘D’ handles were also fitted to the doors. Postformed worktops were used to complete the refit, with a speckled grey colour chosen for the kitchen and bright blue for the IT suite.
The cloakroom furniture included made-to-measure shelving that was hung above the clothes pegs and movable base units to increase storage space. Other bright colours such as red and green were chosen to define the different areas of the school.
Trevor Gilman, Managing Director, said: “We worked alongside T and B Contractor and Haringey Council to complete the project.
“With over 29 years experience in manufacturing and installing fitted furniture, we have built a reputation for excellent service and advice, short lead-times, and deliver nationwide. As our Education range furniture is robust, it is also suited to special needs and secure unit learning establishments.”Case study date: February 18, 2011
