  • Description

    Islington Arts and Media School is a co-educational comprehensive secondary school which has been completely redeveloped under the Government’s Building Schools for the Future initiative (BSF). The programme created brand new facilities at the school including art, dance, drama, media and music classrooms and practice rooms, as well as new science laboratories, ICT suites, sports hall and a professional theatre.

    Avonline Flooring was appointed to deliver the new flooring requirements for the music hall and theatre. The work had to be programmed to take place in the holiday periods between school term times, and the programme was hampered by the severe access difficulties due to the school’s inner London location.
