Notre Dame School

Classroom Refurbishment at Notre Dame School

The school classroom refurbishment of Notre Dame School ICT suite and adjacent classrooms made the best of a building with character that wasn't ideally suited to a tech based classroom environment. The very high quality lighting scheme, clever furniture layout and monochrome colour scheme gives this classroom refurbishment a timeless, 'lab' like, quality that perfectly captures the science behind computing and ICT.

Parring-back the rooms help the good quality architectural features come to the fore, improving the overall perception of quality and presence for the rooms and making best use of the early 20th century construction. High ceilings add to the sense of space in what are densely occupied rooms. Classroom refurbishment that is sympathetic to the architecture of the building is more likely to deliver good teaching and learning spaces.

School classroom refurbishment include a dedicated ICT room and a dual-purpose room where hardware is used alongside regular whole-class teaching arrangements. Dual use, or multi-format teaching, is an increasingly common design objective when refurbishing school classrooms. As teaching and learning become more multi-format including group work, lecture style format and learning through doing, so classrooms must be adaptable. This is also the best long-term route to achieving a return on investment as adaptable classroom design will best accommodate developments in curriculum, teaching methods, student diversity and changing student headcount.

Staff WCs also received a thorough makeover, transforming a dark and unloved toilet using a bright and fresh appearance.

The design and project management of this classroom refurbishment was integrated to fulfill a wide ranging brief and restricted timetable to carry out the work. Under these circumstances good workmanship and coordinated programming are vital services from successful school refurbishment contractors. The school refurbishment project at Notre Dame achieved the primary challenges of completion before the start of term, to an agreed cost and quality level. The images of the refurb show the finished work.
