Marjon Lecture Theatre
“All of the theatre walls were fitted with marine ply and varnished. Finally, the new contemporary seating was installed into the concrete floor and the area at the back of the theatre in the the alcoves was enhanced with display lights featuring a colour changing setting to create a cinema ambiance. Funky movie lights completed the project.”

Westcare’s Education Interiors department was called in to update and refurbish our Lecture Theatre. The room had been used for a variety of purposes and we wanted to establish a dual purpose theatre, used for lectures during the day and convertible into an area which the students could use for a movie night.
The area was tested for asbestos and the flooring was found to test positive. This was swiftly and efficiently dealt with by specialist contractors. The flooring was replaced with a modern, non slip finish over all of the stepped areas and the entrance was fitted with carpet tiles.
We were then able to fit 72 new double sockets with USB charging slots, using Westcare’s panel of accredited electricians.
Westcare was approached by the Director of the Marjon Business School and the Finance and Estates Co-ordinator to quote and implement a design for the new business school, to be known as The Edge Project.
Working closely with our Client’s brief, a meeting room, reception and office area were fitted with workstations, seating and storage to provide a light, clean, inviting and ergonomically sound environment. At our Client’s request Westcare also undertook to supply and fit an innovative, bespoke partition solution, which was designed and manufactured to fulfill both visual and accoustic criteria.

Hele’s School Library Refurbishment
“It’s been a pleasure working with Westcare during our library refurbishment. From design to completion, nothing was ever too much trouble. The customer care and high standards provided throughout the project have been second to none. The students and staff are thrilled with the transformation.”
Director of Business & Finance
We were called upon by Hele’s School to complete a number of build and refit projects around the school including their corridors, reception and their impressive library building which was in need of modernisation. The remit for the library was to create an open and airy atmosphere where the students would feel welcome and want to be a part of.
Designed as a collaboration between the Client, Westcare’s Project Managers and supply partners. We ensured that adequate storage was available for books, while still keeping the library bright and spacious. There was enough comfortable seating to allow for relaxed reading and sufficient benching for IT use so that students could study more formally.
The client required high specification furniture to complement this impressive building, and special information features for the visitor centre.
The conference room needed to be a flexible area with options for different seating and cable layouts without compromising on quality.
This space planning and furniture project was completed within budget and on time.

Devonport High School for Boys Science Laboratory
“The installation was completed on time and produced two high quality, modern labs. I would certainly use Westcare again as part of refurbishment programmes in the future.”
Devonport High School for Boys
We refurbished and modernised a second floor laboratory, including the creation of pods with gas and power for student use.
The whole room was cleared and all fixtures and fittings removed, including floor covering and pipework. The engineer laid new gas and power under the floor boards to fit into special pods taking gas taps and power boxes.
The ceiling was lowered and LED panels installed with new ceiling tiles. A modern, compliant gas safety system was installed together with non-slip safety flooring.
The whole area was decorated and benches, sinks and bespoke teacher’s desk fitted to modernise the Laboratory.
We were tasked to design a modern working environment providing a high standard of inspirational benching and storage to encourage collaborative working.
The public areas reflect the ethos and professional expertise of the client.
Additional floor to ceiling units were required which needed to be streamlined and functional, as well as flexible to allow for expansion.

St Matthews C of E Primary Academy Fit-Out and Furnish
“Resourcing and creating a school environment, from scratch, has been an interesting and exciting journey and Westcare have supported us to create the vision. Westcare were chosen because of the service they provide, their pricing policy and the fact that we wanted to support a local company. They have sourced resources, manufactured bespoke furniture and provided advice and guidance on room layouts. I would highly recommend them.”
Matthew’s C of E Primary Academy
We were asked to supply a complete installation for the new St. Matthews C of E Academy in Derriford, Plymouth. This remit included classroom tables and chairs, hand towel dispensers, pens, pencils, exercise books and musical instruments, a total of 1756 classroom resources and 608 lines of furniture and janitorial products.
Once the order was placed we were able to produce individual room plans for the client together with a complete list of items required for each room.
Each classroom was furnished and co-ordinated by size and colour. The library was fitted with bespoke items creating ample storage with space for additional shelving as required.
