PROJECT BACKGROUND:

To enhance the learning experience for students with complex needs, a school extension project was planned and completed over two stages.

STAGE ONE: A modular sensory room, library, and classrooms were installed during the summer holidays.

STAGE TWO: New sixth form buildings and the Ash Library were constructed.

All buildings were expertly designed and provided by MPH Building Systems.

OUR ROLE WITHIN STAGE ONE:

The site presented access challenges due to its sloped, uneven terrain. To address this, we were tasked with designing, supplying, and installing a modular ramp system to ensure wheelchair access to the classroom block.

Our surveyor performed an on-site assessment to gather the necessary measurements. Using this data, our internal drawing team produced 2D and 3D illustrations of the ramp, which were provided to the client along with a quotation.

Once the enabling works were completed, our installation team efficiently completed the ramp installation during the summer holidays to avoid disrupting the school routine.

RAMP FEATURES INCLUDED:

  • Trombone Ends - Installed at the ends to prevent clothes from snagging.
  • Mesh Platform – This is a multi-directional slip-resistant walkway with self-draining steel mesh with a galvanised finish.
  • Continuous Handrail - This handrail system ensures that users always have a support to hold onto.
  • Standard Colour: Black - Our ramps have a powder-coated black finish that is more durable than typical paint.
  • Adjustable Telescopic Legs - These can be adapted to suit various threshold heights.

EXTRA FEATURES INCLUDED:

  • Infill Handrail - This product safeguards against users climbing or falling through gaps.
  • 1100mm High Rail - These handrails attach to any level sections.

OUR ROLE WITHIN STAGE TWO:

We efficiently installed a modular step system to the library cabin within a day, minimising disruption.

STEP SYSTEM FEATURES INCLUDED:

  • Trombone Ends - Installed at the ends to prevent clothes from snagging.
  • Mesh Platform – This is a multi-directional slip-resistant walkway with self-draining steel mesh with a galvanised finish.
  • Continuous Handrail - This handrail system ensures that users always have a support to hold onto.
  • Standard Colour: Black - Our step systems have a powder-coated black finish that is more durable than typical paint.
  • Adjustable Telescopic Legs - These can be adapted to suit various threshold heights.

EXTRA FEATURES INCLUDED:
