Food technology rooms must accommodate various activities from investigation and evaluation through to preparation for events.
Food environments are designed to incorporate both study and preparation areas. To house white goods, bench heights are normally set at 900mm, although lower tables can be provided for written work.
When planning the food rooms special consideration is given to health and safety. Working distances such as the traveling distance from the cooker to the sink, and storage distribution, are pivotal in our planning. This helps to provide a safe operating environment in the kitchen.
ICT areas are specifically designed to enhance teaching of computer based subjects.
Holt Building & Joinery Ltd. have the flexibility to take into account your preferred teaching methods. You may want to encourage a more office-like environment or a more formal teaching environment.
Textiles or fabric rooms are used for a variety of design and construction activities. Pupils are engaged in designing and manufacturing using sewing and knitting machines.
Areas are planned to include both traditional and CNC based activities. Serviced areas are generally kept to the perimeter with the central space being left flexible for group activites.
Design & Technology
Design and Technology is a practical subject. Students are involved in both design and construction using a wide range of materials including wood, metal, plastics and textiles.
Areas are designed to accommodate both practical and written work, taking into consideration that pupils need space to design, make and evaluate their projects. Departments are planned with complete understanding that the relationships between each discipline and storage needs are fully satisfied.
