In 2014, Barry Island Primary School in South Wales invested in a considerable classroom refurbishment programme to reinvigorate the school’s learning environment for its staff and pupils.
With any refurbishment project – whether it is within a school, college or university – it is vital to consider how to create a flexible teaching environment that maximises valuable classroom space whilst ensuring that essential storage requirements for everyday items be accommodated easily and effectively.
Working closely with bof (Bridgend Office Furniture), James Tobias overcame the challenges of increased ceiling heights and untrue walls to design and fit the innovative EducationWall – a run of modular storage units to house all the key elements you’ll find in a modern classroom. This included items such as smart/interactive screens, Gratnell trays, charging points for tablets/laptops and lockers, to name a few.
The innovative storage unit helps staff and students reclaim all important classroom space, offering maximum flexibility and excellent storage capabilities.
The refurbishment programme represents a huge step forward for the school and we are proud of the result; a practical, flexible, ergonomic, stylish storage solution that helps the school provide a tidy, safe and open learning environment where students can get on with the important task of learning.
