We've received our first look at our new Arts Centre spaces and we can't wait to see it all come together! We're already imagining how we can decorate the rooms with our students' artwork and display their exciting work-in-progress.
This week we had our first glimpse of the site build. The contractors are all hard at work fitting the new walls, plastering, and preparing the spaces for decorating. The bespoke joinery is ready and waiting in the workshop and flooring is due to arrive next week!
The joinery is here! This week the door frames, doors and window sills are being fitted, followed by some bespoke storage solutions to house all our Arts supplies and resources. The first fix of the electrics is also well underway and we had a peek at the new lighting that will be installed over the next few weeks. We've even started decorating!
It's time to fit the fixtures! This week, the windows are being fitted as well as the storage solutions designed by our Art Department. The floors are also being prepped for the flooring to be fitted on the upper level next week, and the decorating is well underway throughout.
Let there be light! This week, the second fix of the electrics is underway and the first lights have been installed. The flooring on the upper level has now been fitted too, which means we can really start to visualise the new spaces. We can't wait to put our stamp on them!
There's a flurry of activity this week! From finishing the floors and lights to prepping the new workbenches and continuing with the decorating, there's plenty happening on site!
Our new Art spaces will be a lively hub for our talented artists, so the main event this week is fitting the acoustics. These white panels will contain the sound within the room, whilst still retaining the modern, industrial look and feel of the space.
It's finally time to start unpacking! This week, all our equipment, furniture, artwork and resources have come out of storage ready to find their new home in the Arts Centre.
It's not long now until the start of term, and the Art Department are busily preparing their new spaces ready to welcome back all our students on Monday!
