Learning institutions across the nation are moving toward safety and sustainability. School administrations now more than ever understand the importance of using the best technologies for their school projects, especially when they have a tight project timeline. So do the contractors, engineers and architects. Using our precast beam and block flooring system, we offer engineers and architects the flexibility to meet their clients’ needs.
These are the same reasons learned by administrators and builders planning new schools. We are proud to highlight the use of a precast beam and block flooring system for the canteen extension at the German School Nairobi.
About the project
German School Nairobi is an independent school in Limuru Road, Parklands. The school aims at providing a safe and caring environment for every student and staff, respectively. The school administration intended to build a new canteen facility to cater for students of an area of 145 square meters.
Time was a key concern to the school administration. The Administration wanted to avoid time overrun against the contract period. The school was closed for the holidays, and the building of the canteen had to be ready before the new term.
In addition, the client was looking for a system that works well using the original structure and avoid disruptions, which might also affect the project sustainability. It would affect the total cost of the project. With this in mind, the beam and block flooring system proved to be a sensible option.
