You were very professional, helpful and patient during the design phase and the high standards have been maintained by you and your team throughout the preparations and build phases. The project and contracts teams led by Richard and Darren were very efficient before and during the project.

Klick were involved in discussions at the early stages of this project regarding the feasibility of converting a disused canteen into a food technology or D & T room. The adjacent gym had previously been used as the dining hall with a hatch through to the canteen. When new dining facilities became available elsewhere the school wanted to make the most of the redundant space.
The disused canteen had become a cluttered store room. Klick suggested removing internal walls and blocking a large serving hatch in order to make the most of the space. Design options were submitted to the school to create a bright and stimulating space for Design & Technology lessons.
A storage wall was incorporated between two structural pillars. This provided plenty of storage for equipment and gave the room a focal point. It was positioned to cover the area where the hatch had been thus avoiding expensive plaster work to make good the affected area. To complete the room Multi-media work benches were installed which are suitable for woodwork and metalwork.
