Scandinavian-inspired Design for New School

Published Date:

17 Oct 2011


Bexhill High School, based in Hellup, East Sussex, is the first in the county to be completed under the BSF (Building Schools for the Future) scheme.

The new school is based on Swedish and Danish education models, which utilises large open plan areas called pods, which surround a central heart space. Each pod is the equivalent to three classrooms (245m2) and houses approximately
90 students and 5 or 6 teachers to supervise. The building has been designed to maximize flexible personalised learning for pupils, with a heavy focus given to IT and the surrounding environment.

Over 4,200m2 of Supacord tiles in 6 different colours were installed by Hertfordshire-based Rees Flooring Ltd as the product provides an ideal flooring solution for the forward-thinking school.

James Fletcher from Rees Flooring Ltd commented; “As the school has a less than traditional layout – all the floors needed to multitask, which is why we selected the Supacord range from Heckmondwike FB was specified. The Supacord range has superior properties when it comes to providing a hard-wearing flooring solution, with antistatic properties for the IT element, acoustic reduction properties to handle the large open plan spaces and it’s versatility to be cut to any shape without fear of raveling. Its BRE A+ rating also provides essential environmental benefits and its anti-slip properties help to maintain an element of safety within the school.”

Heckmondwike FB has a specific range of carpets and carpet tiles for educational areas that are incredibly cost effective and versatile, offering a wide range of outstanding properties from; antistatic, anti-slip, acoustic and thermal properties, easy to maintain and all made in the UK.
