Glassdor - Knowle DGE Learning Centre Bristol
Based in Bristol, Knowle DGE Learning Centre is a vibrant and aspirational learning community for young people with additional educational needs. The ethos of the centre revealed within its name, Discovery, Guidance and Enjoyment.
Formerly known as the Florence Brown School, the centre moved to its current, purpose-built site in the summer of 2010. Constructed under Building Schools for the Future programme, the school typically has a roll of about 150 students who benefit from the high staff ratios and superb facilities.
Working with Gemsec, the Bristol based security specialists, Strongdor supplied products from both the Steeldor and Glassdor ranges. Installed across the site in a recent refurbishment, the doors had been chosen for their durability in what can be a high traffic, demanding environment.
Operating within the narrow timeframe of the summer break, it was essential that the doors where made and delivered on schedule and, importantly for the public sector, within budget.
