Cotswold School, Cheltenham
Cotswold School, based in Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire is a growing 11-18 comprehensive academy. With the school having recently grown from 220 to 250 pupils the site was in need of new external seating areas for the children but within the schools existing grounds. The school approached Langley Design to produce a range of street furniture to go around the site, providing a collection of seating, planters and bins all within the school’s budget. Using our extensive Education sector knowledge and solutions-based approach we maximised the seating areas and planting provision whilst still trying to value engineer where possible to give the school the biggest impact for their spend.
For the pupil seating we used a combination of both our Sheldon SBN300 and SBN304 benches. The SBN300 with tubular galvanised steel legs were root fixed into concrete below the ground level and then finished around with paving, giving a seamless finish with no visible fixing points. The remainder of the benches, our popular SBN304, are mounted on grey granite plinths which sit directly on a level engineered surface and allowed the school to install these to their levelled tarmac areas. All items produced were bespoke manufactured to match the exterior outline of the building to fully utilise the area that was available and add more of this much-needed pupil seating. Langley Design also provided a variety of planters and planters with integral benching, a solution which meant the school were able to further utilise their space without adding significant cost. The scheme was finished off with timber litter bins, as with all the other items fabricated in a Class 4 Treated Redwood to give a harmonious and consistent look throughout the external spaces, whilst offering a long lasting and durable finish.Download Project Case Study
