Altro gives new flagship school affordable style and safety


A


ltro products have played a large part in the construction of a new £15 million flagship school in Liverpool, where safety, affordability and style were top priorities. Notre Dame Catholic College, in Everton, opened its doors to 850 pupils in September and was built to an innovative design, proving that high quality spacious schools can be constructed to an austerity cost plan. The first of 10 new schools that will be built in Liverpool over the next few years, Notre Dame has an adaptable and flexible structure. Altro Suprema™ II was specified for circulation and classroom areas, Altro Aquarius™ in the showers, Altro Walkway™ for store areas and toilets, Altro Stronghold™ in the kitchen and Altro Whiterock™ for the kitchen walls.


Altro products were chosen due to their proven success on other school projects in terms of safety, aesthetics and maintenance. All Altro safety flooring has lifetime sustained slip resistance, giving peace of mind for safety for years and years to come. The products also fitted the brief for value for money for a project built to an austerity plan.


Kevin Foy, Facilities Manager at the school, commented: “There has been excellent feedback about how great the school looks. Our grand opening was attended by around 300 delegates, and everyone was very impressed. The floors look superb and are proving very practical and easy to maintain. “The Altro Whiterock wall cladding is 100% better than what we had before. It is very hygienic, practical and easy to clean.”
