St Columba’s is one of Scotland’s highest achieving schools, which is consistently ranked within the top ten independent schools in Scotland. With an Early Years, Junior and Senior School, 700 pupils and national representation at sport, music, debating and public speaking, its standards are high.
The school’s historic 19th century building is situated in Kilmacolm, close to Glasgow. It was the need to replace the flooring within its Junior School’s multi-purpose hall and two corridors located within the school’s 1970’s building extension that has brought the refurbished areas into the 21st century.
Extremely high standards were therefore a priority when carrying out the two flooring renovation projects under the management of St Columba’s newly appointed Facilities Manager. “The hall is an all-round area that is regularly used for activities like assemblies, exams, parents’ evenings and for the younger pupils’ games and gymnastics lessons. We therefore needed an equally all-round, multi-purpose flooring to cater for this diversity and to replace the old and unsightly tiles which were in very poor condition,” said Alasdair McGregor, Facilities Manager, St Columba’s School.
