    Rockfon - a better space to educate

    Downloads

    Attention is shifting away from the institutional ‘school’ to a greater focus on both the student and wider community needs. Many children now spend more time at school, due to changing work patterns of parents.

    As a consequence, the school has a more central and important role in not only education but after school activities too.

    Listen to people active in schools (teachers, students, architects, contractors, etc.), and the following major challenges keep coming up:

    • Noise is by far the largest problem in schools.
    • Building materials need to withstand rough treatment and extreme wear and tear.
    • Building materials must be safe and comply with very stringent safety requirements.
    • Many rooms are multifunctional and need to adapt to different requirements such as music, lecture, individual study, group work, etc.
    • Building materials must be easy to maintain and fast to install.
    • Traditionally limited budgets lead to a focus on cost-effective solutions.
    • Refurbishment of existing schools presents different challenges to new-build.
    • Building materials and other products have an influence on the indoor climate in schools, which in turn impacts on the well-being, health and learning performance of students and teachers.
    • Education buildings are characterised by high energy bills and low comfort levels.
    • Different stakeholders have different requirements.

    There is no “one-size fits all” solution to cope with all these different challenges.

    On the following pages, Rockfon delve deeper into these areas and explain how they can help you to find solutions to the main challenges and find the right balance between performance, value and cost.
