ACS Cobham International School
Creating outstanding facilities
ACS Cobham International School offers World Class education delivering a US based curriculum. Sitting in the heart of leafy Surrey, the school prides itself on exceptional standards in education, facilities and accommodation for boarders.
During the latest 2017 residential extension, Stansons took the lead in providing a bespoke shading solution that met the requirements of the project, which was brought in on time and within budget.
A personal approach
& project team’s knowledgeable approach and ‘can do’ attitude were the
driving forces behind the award of the shading package for ACS. Pre-award site visits gave the team a sense of
the quality and demands that were required to win and complete the entire installation
to the clients exacting standards. Sample rooms for boarder and staff
accommodation were installed to iron out specification issues before finalising
the project details and placing orders for manufacture. This also gave the installation team and
project manager opportunities to build strong relationships with the site team.
Creating the right atosphere
accommodation provided by this new addition to the residential wing of ACS was
designed to an extremely high standard, some of it having the appearance and ambiance
of a boutique city hotel. Whilst the
look and feel of the accommodation was clearly important to the school, it was equally
important that the students could rest comfortably in their new surroundings. The expert knowledge and problem-solving
attitude that Stansons applied to this project allowed a maximum blackout effect
without using expensive blackout units, ensuring that students could get a good
night’s sleep whist enjoying their state of the art accommodation.
Once a full
design solution was agreed and signed off, Stansons manufactured and supplied
premium roller blinds with side guide wires for the awkwardly shaped tilt and
turn windows in bedrooms and common areas; voile and blackout curtains were
supplied and installed in the staff living areas and common rooms giving
privacy and darkness where needed; bespoke wave curtains made up in acoustic
fabrics were installed in the sizable TV lounge to provide noise reduction and
darkness to provide premium viewing conditions.
Now that every area of the building is in use, it’s clear that the solutions provided by Stansons have assisted in producing the environment that the original designers were aspiring to create.
Snag free, on time, on budget.
Being able to
provide a consultative approach on this project was the secret to the success
of it’s execution. Ironing out issues at
initial stages, suggesting new specifications, and monitoring the installation,
meant that the client was provided with the best possible solution for their
new flagship building.
