Forbo Flooring Systems’ integrated portfolio of solutions played a vital role in helping to achieve a welcoming, stimulating and caring learning environment for the early learners of a new purpose-built nursery in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire.
As part of South Lanarkshire Council’s Schools Modernisation Programme – a scheme first set out in 2004 to replace or improve every school in the area – the Early Learning Unit was the final education establishment to be completed after relocating to a larger site in the heart of Hamilton. The specialist nursery now accommodates 116 mainstream and Additional Support Needs (ASN) children in a modern, innovative and high-quality environment.
Neil Falconer, Team Leader (Architectural) at South Lanarkshire Council, said: “For many of our school projects, we tend to opt for a grey carpet but for the Early Learning Unit, a specialist, stand-alone nursery, we decided to take a softer approach and choose floor coverings that were warm and welcoming to help ease the children’s’ transition from home and before taking their next step to school."
