About the Project
The Twynham School Stairs and Corridors Refurbishment Project involved the comprehensive renovation of the stairs and corridors on the ground and first floor in the Jenkins block.
The primary objective of this project was to create a modern, safe, and aesthetically pleasing environment for the students, staff, and visitors of Twynham School. The refurbishment aimed to improve the overall appearance and functionality of the school’s common areas, enhancing the learning experience and promoting a positive atmosphere.
The project encompassed a range of tasks and improvements:
Fill all Holes in the Walls and Ceilings: To achieve a smooth and uniform surface, all existing holes and imperfections in the walls and ceilings were meticulously filled and repaired. This step was crucial in providing a solid foundation for the subsequent decoration works.
Redecorate Ceilings, Walls, Windowsills, Doors, and Door Surrounds: The entire area’s visual appeal was revitalised by redecorating the ceilings, walls, window sills, doors, and door surrounds. The chosen colour scheme and materials were carefully selected to complement the school’s ambience and branding.
Poly Soft Flooring: New poly soft flooring was installed in the stairs and corridors, offering improved durability, comfort, and noise reduction. This flooring choice aimed to create a quieter and more comfortable environment for everyone using the space.
New Lighting: The lighting in the staircases and corridors was upgraded with modern, energy-efficient fixtures. Adequate lighting was installed to ensure a well-lit and safe environment, particularly during darker hours.
Undertaking Decoration to Previously Painted Doors: Existing doors within the project area were given a fresh coat of paint or decoration to align them with the new interior design theme.
Remove Existing Timber Dado Rail and Replace with Plastic Bump Rail: The outdated timber dado rail was removed, and a more contemporary plastic bump rail was installed. This not only improved the visual aesthetics but also served as a protective element for the walls.
Replace Plastic Sheeting (Lower Half of the Walls) with Hygienic Wall Cladding: The lower half of the walls, which were previously covered with plastic sheeting, were replaced with hygienic wall cladding. This new material offered increased durability and ease of maintenance while ensuring a hygienic environment.
Corner Protective Strips on All Corners to the Bottom of the Board: Protective strips were installed on all corners at the bottom of the boards to safeguard against wear and tear, particularly in high-traffic areas.
