"I was very impressed with the staff at Klick Technology who were all more than helpful. Klick had to adapt the furniture to suit site conditions, through no fault of their own and this was managed in a professional way. The operatives were very helpful and worked in a safe and tidy manner. The team pulled out all the stops on a tight schedule and came up trumps!"

The school was housed in temporary portacabins whilst the building work was in progress. There was a tight schedule to ensure the move into the new school was on time. This involved close co-operation with Carefoot, the main contractor handling the project, particularly during the final stages when our fitters were working alongside their staff.
Site meetings were held at the planning stage to ensure accurate interpretation of the architects' drawings and so that the needs of the school were fully understood. Bespoke items such as the wall units for IT software storage & dual height sinks were developed to suit the school's requirements.
Trespa was specified as the work top material throughout. Its durability is ideal in a primary school environment where life span was considered a major priority.
The furniture was manufactured, delivered and installation completed for handover within the tight timescales given.
