Education Sector

Our aesthetically beautiful and durable range of laminates offer a whole host of applications for school buildings.

In the 2017 budget £320m was made available to build new free schools, catering for the estimated increase of one million pupils set to enter the English school system over the next ten years. With £150m a year spent unnecessarily on school maintenance, it is clear that building design should be an area of focus.
