Students use external areas of education facilities regularly. Whether changing class or eating lunch, it’s important to provide a balance of street furniture. Dependant on student numbers within the school, college or university, the amount of cycle parking spaces, litter bins or picnic tables are all important. Use Langley Design’s expert knowledge of this sector to make sure you have the perfect balance of product to students on your next education project.
Langley Design have a range of street furniture solutions in varying materials, suitable for any size project. We can create bespoke items of furniture to match the existing scheme finish or colour. Use our vast experience in street furniture to advise you on the products suitable for their final use. We also make sure the project has the products fit for purpose at a price that is suitable for the budgets required.
Education Project Case Studies
More students are travelling to school independently, helping save on fuel costs by cycling to and from school/college. Therefore it is necessary to provide adequate cycle parking spaces and shelters for those people who want to cycle into their education facility.
To keep the external areas of any educational building free from litter a good waste management policy is essential. To help make the process easier Langley Design have a wide selection of litter containers and recycling units available.
All education facilities will need some element of external benching provision for students and teachers to make use of the external landscaped areas and take some time away from the indoor classroom environment.
External dining areas allow the students and teachers to venture away from the interior of the school building where they spend most of the day and spend a short amount of time outside socialising or enjoying their lunch in the open air.
When vehicles, building and pedestrian are in the same space bollard protection is normally required. Help protect pedestrian and building entrances from vehicle intrusion with bollard delineation. Fixed, removable or fold down bollards are available depending on access needs.
Whether it is shelter from the rain or shelter from the sun, chances are there will be some need for external shelters within the education project. Langley design can provide shelter provisions from covered walkways between buildings to parent waiting shelters.
