Client Brief

Full college fit out and refurbishment of new hair salon and beauty academy at East Kent College in Dover, Kent with the latest in leading edge facilities for their college students.

Project Summary

Having previously completed the college refurbishment and fit out works for the Travel and Tourism academy facilities on the 3rd floor and the Computing and Gaming Education facilities on the 2nd floor, we were delighted to be awarded further school works at the Dover Campus.

East Kent College having taken over Dover and Folkestone Colleges aspired to improve the current hair courses provided for Students. A sparkling fresh Hair & Beauty academy for Dover to match the facilities already offered at Broadstairs campus was high on EKC agenda.

To provide real training facilities to reflect the true business world for Hair & Beauty it is important to design trendy working environments –  equipment provided by the college.

Incorporating the brand colours of East Kent College, the walls in the studios were re-decorated including a corporate colour feature wall painted in teal blue which worked in contrast with the salon flooring – Polysafe Standard, Twilight and Silver Oak.

New suspended ceilings were installed throughout the 1st floor along with new data cabling, electrics, trunking, skirting, flat panel LED lighting and new touch screen interactive “Smartboards”.

The existing ventilation system was adapted to suit the new layout with new radiators were also installed and existing radiators reconfigured.

New doors and Ironmongery were installed to every room on this floor, the existing access security system had 1 set of double doors added to it and fully serviced.

A salon reception area was created outside both hair and beauty classrooms with new furniture, including a dark oak reception desk.

Display furniture – designed and built – was installed to showcase the latest hair products- like business does in the real world!

The existing store cupboard was transformed t provide a new Kitchen area. 2 new washing machines were supplied and installed – a donation to the project from Rap interiors.

To finish off this trendy student salon a new BOSE sound system was installed and designed to be dual -controlled from one central point and individually from each salon.

All works were carried out whilst the college was in operation by staff, students and clients.
