Lancashire Primary enjoys flexible new purpose built school
With a brand new purpose built school, which opened in Sept 2014, Barnoldswick CE Primary School in Lancashire is providing a caring and happy environment to ensure that all pupils achieve their best, and go from strength to strength.
Working with architects from Lancashire County Council, and Bramall Construction, Style was specified to create flexible space in one of the classrooms and in the main sports/dining hall.
DORMA’s semi-automatic Moveo® partitioning wall was deemed the best option for Barnoldswick – a new generation of lightweight moveable walls which incorporates ComforTronic® automatic seals as standard. Moveo® panels weigh up to 50% less than a conventional acoustic moveable wall with quick operation and acoustic integrity every time.
“DORMA Moveo® was perfect for dividing space in this impressive new school,” said Andy Gibson, Style’s director for the north. “The main hall is 6 metres high, and with Moveo® catering for rooms up to 9 metres, we could accommodate this with ease, providing 55dB acoustics and a stylish ash veneer finish.
“In the classroom, a magnetic writable wall board finish meant not only could teaching staff divide the space with ease, they could also use the wall as a white board too making this a really impressive feature, also with a 55dB rating enabling classes either side to be conducted undisturbed.”
DORMA’s moveable partitioning walls are leading the way in sustainable solutions with an Environmental product declaration (EPD) in accordance with ISO 14025 and EN 15804. Style’s DORMA customers also benefit from Building Information Modeling (BIM) offering architects and specifiers smart, computerised, three-dimensional planning of buildings.
