School ICT Suite Design

ICT Suite Design for Schools

ICT suite design and ICT rooms often have dedicated continuous surface desking to make maximum use of space within a classroom. School ICT suite design works on an 'open' layout enabling teachers to interact with students and view screens easily, and for easy circulation. Perimeter desking or ICT suite benching also helps greatly in cabling the computers for power and network access.

Alternatives include flexible ICT Furniture that offer easy reconfiguration, or furniture designed for multi-purpose classrooms where desks can be quickly converted to regular classrooms without any removal of hardware.

ICT Suite design and refurbishment should start with evaluation of the basics - is the room a dedicated IT space, would flexibility be beneficial, and how do teachers plan to use the room. For ict room design layout is fundamental, as is future-proofing the suite for hardware changes. Safety and tamper-proofing are of high priority. Design of the appearance is a key factor to ensure the suite is a flagship for the school or college facilities. Consideration should also be given to lighting and sun-angles, acoustics and HVAC when designing an ICT classroom, both to improve comfort and attention for students and to reduce effort and stress for teachers.

Ergonomics should play a part in the ict suite design. Display screen distance, worksurface height and keyboard arrangement all have sound ergonomic principles to their positioning. reduced light reflection and dazzle from sunlight need to be factored in as well. The ict room layout design process considers the viewing angles for students to see the main display/board, and also the preferences of staff in terms of circulation space and layout. Seating also plays a role in the workstation, although with short lesson durations of 1 hour or less the demands placed on seating are less exacting.

Take Pride in the Design of your New School Library with Fusion.

Library design should be a fun process and we hope to make it an enjoyable experience for all involved. We will work together to ensure we create the most effective learning environment, tailored around the needs of pupils and teachers.

Creating an Effective Learning Environment

School library design needs to consider many important factors, including; space, budgetary requirements, technology, furniture, storage, architecture, signage, themes, privacy, layouts, lighting and partitions. A combination of the many different aspects will help to create an effective learning environment.

School library design is similar to any normal library design, although the need to create an effective learning environment is far greater, especially when a large number of students have to be catered for.

As we mentioned previously, there are many things that need to be considered to ensure the learning environment is as effective as it can be. The design of the library is where it all starts.

Our Library Design Service: How it Works

Planning and Preparation - Working closely with you, we will gather all ideas to find out what you want to achieve. Whether you require charging points, reading corners, writing areas, ICT benching, displays or partitioning, all aspects of the design will be discussed at this point.

Concept Creation - As we look to start planning how your library will look once it is finished, we will create one or several design concepts so you can visualise how it will look.

Planning the Library Fit Out - Once you have viewed the design concept(s), we will make any necessary edits or adjustments until you are happy. Only once you are happy with the design will we start making arrangements for your new school library to be fitted/installed.

Project Management

Fusion will fully manage the project from start to finish, keeping you in the loop at all times. We will look to ensure downtime is kept to a minimum, following the guidelines set out in the design. Before we start, we will provide you with an estimation for how long we feel the project will take.

We work alongside trusted contractors to ensure your library is finished to the standard your school, pupils and everyone within, deserves.

If you are looking for library design experts, specialising in the design of libraries for schools and colleges, Fusion Classroom Design can help you moving forward. We can tackle any project, small or large, with experience from designing libraries for primary schools, secondary schools and colleges.
