Our insights on education

Drywall systems can help create an environment to help assist educational outcomes, especially: 

• The aesthetics to inspire students and teachers alike
• To control classroom-to-classroom acoustic insulation and enhance speech clarity within the classroom
• The robustness to withstand heavy wear-and-tear and to embed IT and other services into the fixed features

Supporting your project

For larger projects, we add value before, during and after the construction phase. Working with the project team, we can support the initial tender, finding ways to improve aesthetics or building performance, cut construction costs, reduce build times or suggest ways to lower on-going maintenance costs.Click below for examples of recent projects.
