VIVALDA Hull have recently completed their latest education project as part of the Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP), Deans Trust Academy, Ardwick. The PSBP is a government initiative addressing schools which are in the most urgent need for repair, a total of 214 schools across the UK are being completed using capital funding.

VIVALDA have so far completed 3 projects in the Yorkshire region – Beckfoot Upper Heaton, Samuel Lister Academy, and Deans Trust, Ardwick and are currently supplying Manchester Enterprise Academy, Harrogate School and All Saints School.

With some of the best machinery and optimisation tools in the country, VIVALDA Hull were able to minimise waste and deliver panels to site cut to size, pre-drilled and palletised for an easy installation process. With large scale projects, saving costs where possible and minimising waste is of high importance, the 4 panel size options that FunderMax offer and VIVALDA’s own fabrication facilities help to achieve this.

Offering over 100 different decors FunderMax allowed architects to quickly and easily find the exacting colour pallet for each school. FunderMax Max Exterior was chosen due to the excellent durability offered, proven by a ‘hail impact resistance’ test, where solid blocks of ice are canon fired at high speed at different areas of the panels.

Paul Hughes, Director of Sales UK, discussing the tight budgets and creativity needs of education projects said “Creativity is no longer a ‘nice to have’, but a pre-requisite, made possible by materials such as Max Exterior and its extensive decor range. This has been a really rewarding project, and despite the tight timelines we’ve managed to deliver – thanks to everyone’s determined efforts.
