What should you consider before starting your school refurbishment project?

We encourage our clients to consider the following factors before embarking on a refurbishment project:

  • Establish clear objectives and scope for the project – Clearly identify the specific areas of your school that require renovation and determine their functional needs. This allows us to provide a tailored quote that suits your project’s unique requirements. Our team has experience in both smaller and larger scale projects, ensuring we can meet your needs effectively.
  • Determine a realistic budget – It is crucial to determine your ideal budget for the project. By understanding your budget, we can provide guidance on selecting the best materials and design options that deliver desired results while remaining within your allocated budget. We aim to help you achieve your vision without compromising on quality.
  • Clearly define your project’s timeline – We recognise the importance of minimising disruption to daily school activities and upcoming events. To ensure the success of your project, we recommend providing us with a list of key dates and events in advance. This allows us to carefully plan and schedule the refurbishment activities to minimise any potential disruption.
  • Highlight any safety and security concerns – Your safety and security are of utmost importance to us. It is essential to inform our team about any specific safety or security concerns related to the project. Each team member is trained in health and safety protocols, ensuring that the project is executed with the highest level of care and adherence to safety standards.

What is the process for your school refurbishment service?

Our team of school refurbishment contractors will guide you through our simple five step process:

  1. Planning and Assessment – Firstly we will conduct a assessment of your school space, understand your objectives and gather information about functionality for your refurbishment plan.
  2. Design and Projection Timescales – Collaboratively, we will create a design concept that aligns with your preferences and establish projected timescales for each phase, ensuring a realistic timeline that minimises disruption to school activities.
  3. Budget and Materials Confirmed – We work closely with you to finalise the project budget, providing transparent cost breakdowns, and assist in selecting cost-effective materials and finishes that align with your vision.
  4. Execution – Our experienced team takes charge of the refurbishment, coordinating all necessary activities, procuring materials, and ensuring high-quality standards are met. We will prioritise your safety, minimise disruptions, and maintain clear communication throughout the project.
  5. Final Touches & Evaluation – We will then add the finishing touches to bring your refurbishment to life, installing furniture and fixtures according to the design plan. We conduct a thorough inspection, invite your evaluation, and address any remaining concerns to ensure your satisfaction with the final result.

Cost effective ways to refurbish a classroom, lecture hall or staffroom with paint?

Whether it’s a classroom, library, lecture hall, or staffroom, a simple coat of fresh paint on the walls and ceiling can work wonders in instantly transforming a tired space into an inviting and rejuvenated environment. It is one of the most cost-effective ways to breathe new life into a room. To create a calming atmosphere, we recommend opting for a soothing colour palette of blues or greens, which promote a sense of relaxation and tranquility. However, if you’re looking to infuse the space with a bolder and more vibrant ambiance, exploring a range of vibrant colours can add dynamic elements and stimulate creativity.

Another excellent way to revitalise your space is to paint your out-dated furniture to give it a new lease of life. Our skilled painters will be happy to guide you in selecting suitable paint options that best suit your furniture materials, ensuring a high-quality and durable application. Painting your furniture not only gives it a fresh look but also provides an opportunity for customisation. We encourage you to get creative and let your imagination run wild by adding patterns or designs to your classroom chairs and other furniture pieces for us to implement.

Lastly, there has been a growing trend in utilising accent walls and decorative decals as a cost-effective means to infuse visual interest and personality into staff rooms and classrooms. These options have become increasingly popular as alternatives to expensive custom murals or wallpaper, which can be rather expensive.
