We have specialist knowledge of space planning which takes current legislation into account. It's important to consider legislation relating to design to ensure a safe and functional learning environment. The BS 8300 Code of Practice is significant when planning spaces for educational establishments as it relates to design considerations including mobility issues, colour contrasts for visual clarity and safe working distances.
Whether you desire to maximise space efficiency, promote learning, protect furniture against misuse, create an area with stunning visual impact, or all of these, our design team have the answers.
At Pinnacle, we won't just plan your layout; we have an interior design team with expertise in colour coordination and material choice. The interior designer will also consider the practicalities of the durability and size of the furniture to ensure your project works well for years to come. We use colour schemes, mood boards, material samples and layouts to illustrate our proposal and help you make choices about your project. We will also work with colours and designs that you have in mind and consider the building style and features to create a proposal individual to each client.
Layout and Traffic Flow
By understanding an area and its purpose, we will analyse traffic flow and usage to ensure our solution makes the best use of the space. Traffic flow is particularly important in larger areas such as dining halls to ensure queues are kept to a minimum and space used well. Layout is very important where safety is an issue, such as in food technology rooms and science laboratories where recommended safe working distances need to be considered. We provide 2D and 3D visuals free of charge to illustrate a proposal and help you picture the end result.
Bespoke Furniture Design
Our creative team design bespoke furniture solutions for individual projects when a standard product just won't do. Our fitted furniture can be adapted to every client from a standard range, however we also design bespoke storage, seating, library shelving and reception desks to suit your requirements. We have an extensive range of finishes and colours available for easy colour scheme co-ordination. Signage and integrated lighting can also be incorporated into our creations.
We have a vast experience of working with key stakeholders in the delivery of our project, and encourage clients to review and contribute to the designs. We liaise with teachers, heads of departments, bursars, headteachers, governors and pupils to get all viewpoints on a project. We consider all of their opinions and requirements when creating a solution. This is very valuable when creating a solution to know exactly what must be achieved in the project to provide complete satisfaction. We strive to exceed your expectations on every project.
