- Dixons Trinity Academy is a new build school in Chapeltown, Leeds, which opened in Spring 2020.
- The £21.6 million project provides a state of the art facility to cater for almost 1,000 primary and secondary school pupils – delivering much needed educational places in the Leeds city area.
- Alongside delivering a modern learning space, the new building also provides a comprehensive range of community facilities for sport, performance, exhibition, events, and lifelong learning.
- The academy was constructed by main contractor Willmott Dixon and designed by architects Faulkner Browns for the end client the Department of Education, all done with support from the ESFA Framework.
- Heckmondwike provided two products for the site; Supacord carpet tiles (3,200 square metres) and Dreadnought specialist entrance carpet tiles (150 square metres)
- With a framework agreement in place, Heckmondwike worked closely with Willmott Dixon throughout the project to ensure the correct products were specified and used.
- As the market-leading education carpet, Supacord was ideal for the academy. Millions of square metres of Supacord are currently installed in schools across the country, with the product proven to stand the test of time in heavy commercial areas, such as schools since launching in 1973.
With a prominent, diagonal-ribbed texture resulting in a durable surface, Dreadnought carpet remains a popular choice for use in heavy traffic areas.
