As a part of the 21st Century Schools project, Bouygues UK won the £42.9 million contract for the development of the new Pembroke Learning Campus. Due to open in September 2018, this is one of the largest school projects to be delivered by Pembrokeshire County Council to date.
The first phase of the campus will accommodate 1,463 secondary school pupils and also an Autism Centre for 30 learners. Swanmac are to install heavy duty roller blinds, high level radio operated blinds to the main hall, tensioned roof blinds to a large skylight in the main hall and fully cassetted blackout blinds with crank operation in the science labs.
Our shading solutions provide the ability to manage temperature and heat. This is crucial in order to provide a comfortable working environment for teaching staff and learning environment for pupils. The need for this is accentuated for those on the Autism spectrum as many on the spectrum prefer lower levels of light on an everyday basis.
Pembrokeshire County Council leader, Jamie Adams said:
“This is a flagship scheme and – as part of the 21st Century Schools programme – the largest school project undertaken to date by this council. It will create a learning environment designed to improve the delivery of education in the 21st Century and will address some of the accommodation issues on the Pembroke site.”
We are absolutely delighted to play our part in this latest 21st Century Schools project and we wish the staff and pupils a productive and enjoyable tenure!
