Project Brief
Alva Primary School - Acer in ludo ludisque TeamFFE were appointed, by the product manufacturer, to undertake the installation of ‘teacher-walls’ and ‘wet-walls’, (fitted side units with sinks) within a series of refurbished classrooms at Alva Primary School in Clackmannanshire. All product to be installed was of a fully fitted nature and close liaison was required with both the main contractor and other specialist trades on site.

In particular the installation of the teacher-walls had to be completed to a schedule that allowed the specialist interactive screen installers to fit and test equipment before the start of the new term.

Project Overview
Joiner at work TeamFFE supplied a team of specialist fitters on this project, the team included skilled fitted furniture installers as well as fully qualified shop-fitting joiners. The products installed, although designed to a set standard, required re-work on site to cope with revised dimensions and final installed positions. The materials used included laminate board as well as solid Trespa tops.

Trespa tops with drainage channelsThe TeamFFE site team were asked to add drainage channels to the Trespa tops on either side of the fitted Belfast sinks; these channels weren’t included in the original specifications and were added using a router and specialist jig. The install team also designed and fitted infill panels on the wet-walls where these weren’t included in the original specifications.

Large wall unitTeamFFE Limited’s installation team proved their adaptability to the changing situations and specifications so often associated with the installation of fitted furniture in existing buildings.

Our teams carry, or have access to, a wide variety of specialist tools, fixings and equipment to cope with any changes that may be required on site. This coupled with the teams wide range of skill-sets means any fixed product installation will be completed to a high level of quality, on time and to budget.
