Encasement top of the class for column casings in education
Stylish and robust column casings from Encasement have been installed in a wide range of education projects across the UK involving the redevelopment, refurbishment and construction of new schools both in the public and private education sectors.
A series of Forma metal column casings, which stand six-metre-high, have been supplied and installed by Encasement at Ibstock Place School’s new library building in Roehampton, London, as part of a recently completed £8.5 million scheme.
New Line Learning Academy in Maidstone is another key project where Forma column casings have been used externally to create a feature entrance to the front and rear of this innovative new school, which specialises in business, enterprise and vocational studies.
It’s a similar story in Dumfries, where external column casings have been used to conceal structural steelwork, while at Birmingham’s CTC Kingshurst Academy, column casings are used at the front and rear of the stylish new building as well as inside in the school’s four new ICT learning suites.
Encasement’s managing director, Martin Taylor, said: “We also offer a supply only or supply and install service, which proved to be useful at Ibstock Place School as we were able to work closely with the main contractor to meet their precise requirements. It also ensured that we could effectively co-ordinate our installation around the other elements of this high-quality project.”
