Quick turnaround for Scottish schools projects

Quick turnaround for Scottish schools projects

School development projects often take place in a live school environment, meaning that projects must be completed in very tight timeframes.

IFT has recently worked on projects at Balerno High School in Edinburgh, Lathallan School in the north-east of Scotland, the Kilmarnock College campus in Ayrshire, as well as several new primary schools for Aberdeen City Council.

IFT was approached last year by Kier Construction for advice with a problem substrate that required remedial works to repair the existing paving slabs to an interior street area that was becoming a health & safety hazard at Balerno High School.

We subsequently advised Edinburgh City Council that we were able to overlay the existing substrate using a renovations screed on a suitable membrane, causing minimal disruption. As part of our integrated service, we put forward the Altro Walkway Xpresslay sheet vinyl as the final floorcovering.

Due to the project being in a live school environment, we had a short window available during school holidays. By liaising with both the client and the main contractor prior to the start on site, we were able to produce a comprehensive programme of works and complete the project in the required timeframe.
