Kährs floors chosen by transformational learning primary school
An innovative new primary school in Hartlepool has chosen the wood flooring brand Kährs to join its other top-specification suppliers in fitting out and furnishing its new premises.
The Jesmond Gardens Primary School, a 2,055 metre² premises designed by ADP on behalf of Hartlepool Borough Council, is to be run based on the principles of transformational learning in which the use of independent and personalised learning approaches are encouraged.
The success of the school’s innovative approach partly hinges on the design and layout of the premises. This presented a considerable challenge for designers ADP, who incorporated a central hub along with flexible class ‘bases’ when drawing up plans for the school. Another part of the vision for the school’s design was abundant natural daylight and modern, great quality furnishings.
Stepping up to and meeting the challenge set by the designers was wood flooring manufacturer Kährs, which supplied two award-winning products to Jesmond Gardens. One floor, a Kährs Oak Siena, was laid throughout the central hub and class bases of the school, whilst the other, a Kährs Oak Activity floor, was installed in the school sport’s hall.
