ACCOMMODATION BLOCKS
FOR A RESIDENTIAL SPECIAL SCHOOL

WG Carter built 2 new accommodation blocks for a residential special school, that works with vulnerable and severely traumatised primary aged children and their families.

The build was very technical in order to meet the usage requirements of the children. Safety was the key and so fireproof materials including non-combustible cement cladding were used throughout. Specialist internal ironmongery was specified for the windows and doors. Non-breakable mirrors were installed and all the furniture met the highest levels for child safety.

Each block has 8 to 10 en-suite bedrooms, which have a bed, wardrobe and desk. On the ground floor there are a series of communal rooms including a living room and library or quiet space, therapy rooms, a large kitchen with a dining area.

The aim was to make the new accommodation blocks feel like a normal homely living environment and not to be at all institutionalised. Bright primary colours were used in the decoration and interior design, which when combined with the lighting and decoration, makes the new accommodation blocks feel like home.
