Since 2006 the school has seen significant investment in buildings and major refurbishment work, with one of the most recent and largest developments undertaken in decades being the construction of the new Arts Centre.
With one of the school’s core philosophies that creativity and performance add immeasurably to education and to life, the aim was to give the school’s creative arts department the facilities they deserve, at the very heart of the school.
Included within the development was the creation of a beautiful new performance auditorium with the installation of a bespoke retractable seating platform and small practice suites, all requiring material which would minimise sound impact whilst honouring the acoustical creations.
Sarah Lyall of Sarah Lyall Interiors had previously been introduced to our Nordform Collection and could see the benefits of the flat woven carpets for this project.
Two colourways from the Classic XL range were selected for the practice rooms and the steps for the auditoriums retractable seating platform. The loop pile structure and backing provides a class 33 wear classification, which equates to heavy commercial use, providing the school with longevity for their flooring solution.
Carpet was required not just for aesthetics purposes but also to assist with acoustics and indoor air quality, and with Classic XL’s proven track record this would be easily achieved.
