Soundproofing and Fire Barriers for Schools, Colleges and Academies
London & Kent Construction Ltd are a leading construction and maintenance firm providing first-class services to local residents, businesses and educational institutions in areas of London and Kent.
We understand that schools, colleges and academies have to work to strict guidelines when it comes to safeguarding students, staff and property. We also know that with ever increasing budget cuts, there is a huge amount of pressure on the management team to adhere to specified requirements while balancing the books.
Our experienced team of qualified professionals includ professional tradesmen and women from every trade including plumbers, electricians, builders and commercial decorators. This range of skills, materials and equipment means that we are able to offer schools, colleges and academies a comprehensive service, from start to finish.
Soundproofing and fire barriers aren’t as straightforward as you may think; ever-changing legislation means that some colleges, academies and schools may be failing in compliance without realising it. What’s more, unanticipated changes to legislation means that, often, educational institutions are required to undertake upgrades or changes that they have not budgeted for; on an already strict budget, this can cause stress and a strain on resources in addition to safeguarding issues.
We know that the students in our area are the future. We love working with local schools, academies, universities and colleges. We believe that by installing and maintaining soundproofing and fire barriers, we are not just protecting the premises and people, but we are protecting the future.
We provide soundproofing and fire barriers that meet and often exceed legal parameters to all areas, including:
- Learning areas
- Lecture theatres
- All communal areas
By undertaking these services we help to ensure the safety of people, property and the institution as a whole.
