Dorset, DT11 8LL
ICT Suite & Science Lab Installation
Set in a grand estate built in 1878, Clayesmore School in Dorset has enhanced it’s learning provision by investing in a new build science block to meet the needs of 21st century learning.
The challenge was to design and deliver inspiring and practical modern laboratories, space efficient IT suite and stimulating photography room which formed part of a new classroom facility for use by over 500 pupils.
Working alongside the school and their nominated consultant, Innova designed, manufactured and installed interiors to enhance the science and technology learning experience for students and provide flexibility for the teacher to control the learning environment through a variety of teaching styles.
The science labs were fitted with a Hot Corner layout creating a flexible learning environment which addresses the need to provide both a working classroom and practical laboratory within the same space. Hot Corner’s allows for shorter lines of communication, encourages a collaborative approach to learning and ensures all students face forward towards the teacher for theory lessons.
High performance Trespa and laminate worktops were used throughout to provide durable, long lasting work surfaces.
ICT and photography suites were installed with angled saw-tooth benching taking full advantage of space, providing each individual student more elbow room therefore encouraging productivity and learning. This design also allows the teacher to control the learning environment due to the excellent visibility in the space, ensuring students remain on task and focused.
A brightly coloured storage wall was featured, providing an effective storage solution whilst making efficient use of the corridor space.
The school was delighted with their new stimulating learning facilities, which provides a real “wow” factor for staff and students to enjoy.
Whatever the brief, Innova delivers inspirational spaces which never fail to make an impact.
