Case Study of the Month

08 Jan, 2021

30ft cladded classroom

This White Spruce cladded container has been converted as premises for a playgroup. The ply lining insulates it against extremes of temperature to provide a comfortable environment for the children - it also helps to reduce noise levels escaping the container, and with a room full of pre-school children that's an essential! We used a sealed cork flooring as a hard-wearing alternative to our standard vinyl flooring in classrooms, to withstand the constant battering of little feet and dropped toys. This unit provides a robust yet attractive conversion for our client.
