Dubai English Speaking College (DESC) identified a pressing need to expand their Design and Technology (DT) facilities due to a surge in demand. The existing facilities were no longer adequate to meet the growing requirements of students and the curriculum. In response to this, DESC embarked on a comprehensive project to extend its DT facilities, ensuring a conducive learning environment for students pursuing design and technology courses.
Identification of space
During the initial phase of the project, the school identified a suitable area adjacent to the existing DT facilities. This space, comprising a classroom and an area between the two, was earmarked for transformation into a state-of-the-art prep room and DT workshop. The strategic positioning of these spaces aimed to optimise workflow and enhance the overall functionality of the DT department.
Reengineering and Refurbishment
To realise their vision, DESC undertook a meticulous process of reengineering and refurbishment in strict adherence to safety guidelines. The school invested in modernising the infrastructure, incorporating cutting-edge technology, and ensuring that the spaces were not only visually appealing but also conducive to fostering creativity and innovation.
Recognising the importance of reliable and high-quality suppliers, DESC engaged with three potential providers to manufacture, deliver, and install the workshops. After a thorough analysis, Dryad Education and Learning Space Solutions partnered with Flamefast emerged as the preferred choice for this critical project.
Several factors contributed to the selection of Dryad Education and Learning Space Solutions/Flamefast partnership. One key consideration was the proven track record of Dryad in logistics project management, demonstrating reliability and efficiency in delivering on time. The commitment to customer service excellence further solidified Dryad’s position as a preferred partner for DESC.
Learning Space Solutions/Flamefast brought a wealth of knowledge in machinery quality, installations, commissioning, and testing. The partnership demonstrated a deep understanding of the specific needs of educational institutions, aligning seamlessly with DESC’s goals for creating a cutting-edge learning environment.
Beyond the initial installation, DESC placed considerable importance on post-implementation support. Learning Space Solutions/Flamefast stood out by offering comprehensive aftercare services, including service warranties and annual maintenance of the machinery. This commitment to ongoing support ensured the longevity and optimal performance of the newly integrated DT facilities.
The successful expansion of DT facilities at Dubai English Speaking College stands as a testament to the meticulous planning, strategic decision-making, and commitment to excellence exhibited throughout the project. The collaboration with Dryad Education and Learning Space Solutions/Flamefast not only addressed the immediate needs of the school but also laid the foundation for a sustained and innovative learning experience for DESC students in the realm of design and technology.
