World class Taraflex flooring for Becket Keys School

Hotel, Sport & Leisure Mon, Jun 11, 2018 10:43 AM

Becket Keys Church of England School is a free school established in Brentwood, Essex in 2012.

It was the first Church of England secondary school to be established as part of the free schools’ programme.

In addition to addressing the academic and spiritual needs of the students, their overall fitness and well-being would also be catered for by providing a state-of-the-art sports hall where a variety of activities could be enjoyed.

It’s an area where international flooring specialist Gerflor made a positive difference by supplying some 680m2 of their outstanding high performance Taraflex® sports flooring in ‘Oak’ for the planned refurbishment of the new sports hall.

Nina Chapman, Finance and Contract Manager, Becket Keys Church of England School said: "The flooring was chosen by the architects. The addition of our logo provides a professional touch andwe are delighted with it.”

At Colchester- based Ingleton Wood Architects their commissions range from large-scale new build and refurbishment projects to smaller value design and construction work.

Charlie Holmes, Chartered Building Surveyor from Ingleton Wood said, “Becket Keys Church of England School had an existing sports hall which was coming to the end of its life span. IngletonWood LLP helped Becket Keys Church of England School to apply for funding through the Condition Improvement Fund for Academies.

"We had used Gerflor flooring for a previous scheme and were very happy with the quality of their products. The flooring looks brilliant, and our local area Gerflor representative helped the school complete a design which incorporated the school’s logo in silver.”

Gerflor have more than 70 years of experience with their Taraflex® sports flooring. It offers a wide range of colours and is suitable for a variety of applications.
