LAIDLAW - Orbis Classic For Iconic Midlands Primary School

Laidlaw stainless steel door furniture has been specified for the £5.5M Christ Church C of E Primary School in Walsall. Ironmongery from the Orbis Classic range was selected by Seymour Harris Architecture for use in what has been described as an iconic and innovative building. The circular structure has achieved a BREEAM 'Excellent' rating.

The radical design took a minimalist approach using curved section pull handles throughout. The Orbis Classic range was specified to complement white laminate and full height glazed doors with coloured etched glazing, all used to create a modern, sophisticated learning environment. Stylish door closers using Smoothline operation were installed with accessories which included kick plates, escutcheons, lock cylinders, hinges and electronic access control.

Architect Colin Way of Seymour Harris Architecture commented, “We have been privileged to work with a client team which has been as keen as ourselves to challenge primary school design. Our overall aim, in executing an uncompromisingly modern response to the client brief for Christ Church Primary School, has been achieved through attention to detail. Selection of the ironmongery and the service provided by Laidlaw has been excellent”

The school has been funded by the National Primary Capital Programme and is considered an exemplar for primary school education in the Walsall area. It will eventually serve an additional 100 pupils, increasing capacity to 354 alongside a 26 place FTE nursery.
