A marketing business based near Godalming, Surrey required a very dated industrial unit (see before picture) converted into modern offices complete with insulated dry lined walls, acoustic suspended ceilings with integrated energy efficient LED lighting, elegant glazed partitioning and contemporary flooring.
In addition an stylish office kitchen and washrooms were installed. The client was able to transfer from their existing base to their new offices with the minimum of downtime as all services, including data installations were all in place prior to the move.
The brief was to refurbish the main dining hall of The Priory Church of England School, Dorking. Considerations for safety and hygiene where on top of the list of main requirements for the project. Complete Interiors and the school selected Altro Whiterock White hygienic wall cladding and Altro safety flooring. The overall effect is light and contemporary with all surfaces hygienic and easy to clean. Products from Altro ranges where chosen for both the safety flooring and the wall surfaces because of their suitability and exceptional qualities.
Altro Whiterock White is the hygienic alternative to tiles that’s impact resistant, grout-free and easy to clean. Its smooth white surface and classical purity make it a timeless choice for any interior. HACCP-approved Altro Whiterock White is made from a high-quality, food-safe PVCu polymer that can handle temperatures up to 60°C, and meets all current EU Directives on health and hygiene. Altro safety flooring achieves a PTV ≥36, giving you a one in a million chance of slipping for the lifetime of the flooring. Combined with Altro Whiterock, it provides an integrated system that is fully sealed, hygienic and easy to clean, perfect for demanding areas such as schools and hospitals
Nigel Wright MD at Complete Interiors commented “After taking the brief from the client confirming a bright and contemporary feel was required coupled with the need to have hygienic and easy clean surfaces, it became obvious that the combination of Altro Whiterock White hygienic wall cladding and Altro safety flooring would exactly meet the specification” He went on to say “My fitters, have always, found the products straight forward to install and the technical back up was there from Altro, if required”. Head of premises at the Priory, Joe Mills, was delighted with the overall result, commenting, “the teaching and catering staff are amazed at the transformation which has taken place over the summer break. It is such a pleasant environment for the students to enjoy their meal times and is now so much easier to clean and maintain.”
Sandcross Primary School in Reigate, Surrey wanted to modernise their Year 5 corridor, raising lighting levels and improve the acoustics in, what was, a gloomy and noisy part of the school. The solution we put forward was to install Ecophon Advantage acoustic ceiling tiles coupled with highly efficient, maintenance free, LED lighting panels.
The overall effect was a light, bright area produced by the 40 watt, 3400 lumen LED panels with greatly enhance acoustics facilitated by the sound absorbent, laid in, ceiling tiles.The cost saving achieved by the installation of the LED lighting panels was also a major consideration when the specification was produced as they are up to 70% more efficient than standard fluorescent fittings and, of course, there is no requirement to constantly change tubes.
