Installation: Fairhaven School at Tamatea
Specifier: Neil Fenwick Architects
Installer: Jacksons Flooring
Product: Outlook Spectacle, Outlook Perspective And Assorted Solid Foundation Colours
Fairhaven Base School is a purpose built school providing for primary aged students with special educational needs. Two large colourful classrooms with adjoining changing and toileting areas provide exciting learning areas.
Staff offices, meeting areas, specialist rooms, resource areas and administration area provide the base for satellite units. These satellite classes all on Primary, Intermediate and High School sites, provide the rest of our students with specialist tuition along with the advantage of having access to a mainstream school giving them 'The Best of Both Worlds'.
So the choice of carpet needed to both excite yet be functional and easy to clean. Choosing the random patterned Outlook Spectacle, that has mergeable dyelots, makes progressive installation very simple. Importantly, random patterned carpet tile ensures that when replacing tiles for cleaning, no shade variances are noticed. Replaced carpet tiles simply blend right back in. No dye batch differences. And being made from solution dyed nylon ensures the tile doesn't fade in the sun (unlike printed carpet tiles). Add in the colour using solid foundations inserts and the school looks fantastic. Well done Neil.
