There are over 33,000 educational establishments in the UK ranging from small local authority maintained primary schools to universities with vast campuses. Each of these facilities have specific requirements that must be met in all aspects of the building, and as a surface that users are in constant contact with, the choice of flooring is crucial. Among the practical factors that need to be considered during the design and specification are the acoustic performance, safety properties, cleaning and maintenance requirements and impact on indoor air quality. Additionally, the flooring has a significant role to play in the overall design of the building and must also support efforts to reduce the environmental impact.
