Heathcote 6th Form College
As part of a continuing FF&E supply and consultancy relationship with Kent County Supplies Portsdown were asked to specify and provide fixed and loose furniture for Heathcote School & Science College’s new 6th form college building in Chingford, Essex.
Portsdown provided flexible and cost effective furniture for general purpose classrooms, LRC areas including soft seating zones for students, staff offices, refectory, gymnasium mirrors, drama staging and curtains as well as specialist hair salon furniture and equipment. Portsdown also designed and provided fixed science lab furniture such as peninsula and perimeter worktops and storage with gas, power and water fixtures.Using our manufacturing element enables us to match the finishes of the fixed storage for the classrooms with the finishes of the classroom desks.
Portsdown worked with the schools head teacher and deputy head to specify the loose furniture and also to design the fixed furniture. Pupils were given the opportunity to give their opinion on which student chair to specify. Product specification & space planning was all achieved in a short programme timescale. In addition installation had to be implemented in a reduced timescale due to delays to the building construction, which required close liaison with the school and main contractor.
