Houndsfield Primary School, Enfield
Houndsfield Primary School in Edmonton suffered an arson attack which caused extensive damage to the main admin area as well as smoke damage to the remaining parts of the building. 24/7 Interiors were appointed to reinstate the damaged areas following the fire.
The first few days were spent setting up the site by providing extra security and health and safety training to the workforce, as well as taking delivery of equipment and materials required to complete stage 1.
24/7 Interiors undertook extensive work to include: new external windows, new main entrance (including a new ramp and entrance steps), MF and suspended ceilings, structure of curved walls, a new, contemporary reception area, cabling for data, telephones, security and fire alarm systems, low energy LED downlighters, flooring, decorating, glass partitions, furniture and toilets.
The result saw the new office and reception area flooded with natural light through fully glazed main entrance doors. The main circulation is now bright and vibrant and feels spacious and airy and the new look of the main entrance works extremely well as a real focal point, giving a hint of what’s to be found inside.
