  • The Devon free schools, Kingsteignton and Westclyst Primary, are both new build developments that provide much-needed education support and spaces in the local areas.


  • Completed at a cost of £12.5 million, the two schools have been developed and constructed using an off-site solution, following Galliford Try’s Optimum Schools principles.


  • Both schools were built using lightweight Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) to form the structure, internal partitions and floors. The off-site construction also included stair units, alongside technical and electrical systems.


  • Overall, the off-site construction method managed to achieve a saving of 14 weeks on programme time against a traditional build process.


  • Heckmondwike worked closely with Galliford Try and architects Scott Brownrigg across both Kingsteignton and Westclyst Primary schools – supplying over 2,200 square metres of the company’s Supacord carpet tiles.


  • Supacord is Heckmondwike’s market-leading product. Manufactured at the company’s site in Liversedge, West Yorkshire, Supacord has forged a reputation for being the number one carpet for the education sector.


  • Available in sheet and tile form across 42 colours, and with a heavy contract rating that has been trusted by thousands of schools across the country, Supacord delivers on both style and substance.


  • Heckmondwike’s carpet tiles were installed on-site by flooring contractors, Unicraft (Kingsteignton) and English County Contracts (Westclyft).
