Co-ordinated school fencing for Village School
A unique co-ordinated school fencing system by KINGCATS, designed to safeguard children in an attractive and colourful way, is integral to the inspirational development of Buckshaw Village primary school in Chorley, Lancashire.
$5.5 million project
The $5.5 million project at Trinity Church of England Methodist Primary School was commissioned by the Diocese of Blackburn and the Methodist Circuit. It features a state-of the-art outdoor play space with multi-use games area, habitat garden and two junior sized football pitches.
The school buildings and outdoor area were designed by architects Cassidy + Ashton who specified KINGCATS to supply the fencing after seeing examples of the company’s projects.
The KINGCATS team worked closely with the architects from the initial design stage to ensure they met budgets and a challenging brief: to create a co-ordinated school fencing design that was attractive and fun whilst providing optimal safety for the school and its 200 pupils.
KINGCATS supplied installer Global Fencing with a unique design incorporating the company’s Dulok Wavetop system for discreet but robust security, the Dulok Rebound system for high performance sports fencing and locking gates with a Slidemaster main gate. A unique multi-coloured ‘pencil’ fence was also added marking out the play area with large pencil-shaped posts with wooden tops that can be repainted by the children in any colour.
The project has been a resounding success with head teacher Jill Wright reporting “The children love their new school.” Chris Taylor of Cassidy + Ashton confirms every team on the project fulfilled the brief with real flair. “We set out to create an inspirational building which teachers and the community can be really proud of. It’s been challenging and it’s so exciting the final results are making a difference to young people’s lives.”
The KINGCATS team was equally satisfied with the results. “The Buckshaw project really showcases our strength in creating fencing that combines serious security with attractive, appropriate design,” says KINGCATS Fencing’s Business Development Manager.
