Case Study

Astrea Academy

Astrea Academy is a new-build and refurbishment project in the north-east of Sheffield, which in time will become one of the city’s biggest schools taking children from nursery age up to sixth form.

With the expected levels of growth came the need for vision and future proofing for the school’s infrastructure, this included flooring for the all-important indoor sports facilities that the academy provides for both pupils and staff alike.

The project would see Gerflor supply 550m2 of its Taraflex® Comfort vinyl sports flooring in Teal for the academy’s sports hall, with a further 250m2 in Oak chosen for the gym area. Being a P3 category sports floor Taraflex® Comfort offers the highest levels of comfort and shock absorption to prevent long-term injuries and immediate injuries on impact.
