The Littleport project is definitely gaining momentum now and reports are all very positive - the build is on schedule for completion and we are now thinking interior design!
In the last few weeks we have been extremely busy considering the fixtures and fittings for all elements of the project (both the Secondary School and Special School). Last Friday the furniture and colours for the building were finalised along with flooring finishes and the resources required. Within the build, extensive overhead tracking and hoist facilities are included along with fully height adjustable tables, sinks and work surfaces to meet everyones needs. We have also been considering the technical aspects of ICT provision in order to ensure that we provide top class facilities for our students.
We have been working very closely with advice from the RNIB and accessibility experts from the Government and Local Authority to ensure the building is fully accessible to meet the needs of all of our students and visitors. This has ranged from technical braille and audio signage to colour coding of areas to ensure our students in particular are as independent as possible. We look forward to being able to share artists impressions and organising open tours for the Special School in the coming months.
