Yarrells School - Upton
Being set in a large manor house with its period features – Yarrell’s School are challenged with the task of keeping this graceful looking building to a standard whilst creating modern and up to date learning facilities.
Yarrell’s have contacted us here at RDP on several occasions for various size projects.
This particular project was a dis-used art room which had damp stains on walls, ceiling in a state of dis-repair and a flooring which over the years had taken some abuse.
The challenge: Turn this room in to a new up to date modern looking classroom.
RDP Proposed a ceiling that would not only work with the original full-length window, but make a feature of it. A class-A sound absorbing tile was fitted which would allow compliance to Building Bulletin 93: Acoustic design of Schools.
Put in a commercial grade flooring which is not only functional, but carries to school’s colours, and allow the colour green to flow from the landscaped surroundings through the period style window through to the class room.
New LED lighting which gives the classroom a burst of light, but configured to not cause any issues with glare and reflection from the future intended whiteboards.
With the School open and the children making full use of this new learning environment, RDP look forward to working with Yarrell’s School on future projects.

"New suspended ceiling and lighting “Competitively priced but above average communication and customer liaison. Work carried out to a very acceptable standard.”"
""I contacted RDP as I was in need of expert guidance for sound insulation between my flat and the flat above. Their response time to my email was almost immediate, and a survey visit was easily arranged, detailed quote provided and date scheduling without any issues. Ceiling and plaster [...]" work always creates dust, but the guys were brilliant in trying to minimise the impact and cleaned up at the end of each day. Their attention to detail and care taken was excellent, you wouldn't know that they had been working here, and the sound from above is greatly reduced. I would highly recommend them.""
"So, initial contact and site visit was very good; polite, informative, friendly, knowledgeable and gave us confidence in the proposed solution. We appreciated the flexibility in pricing to accommodate my proposal that I remove the existing ceiling due to original unusually low ceiling [...]" height. The standard of works that were carried out were to a very high standard, and were started and finished on time. The plaster finish was excellent, the floor covering was very effective and even the clearing up was very professional. The footfall problem that we were experiencing from the flat above was so severe that we were not sure whether we would be able to actually stay in the flat or whether we would have to sell it on. The actual effectiveness of the soundproofing is such that we are now able to enjoy our stays in the flat. We are still waiting for the cold weather before we can properly judge the insulating properties of the ceiling. However early indications are that it has made quite a difference. We are pleased to say that we will without doubt, highly recommend your company. "
"The work was carried out whilst I was away on annual leave, but the finished product is a really good addition to AFC Bournemouth's broadcast interview rooms, and we are very happy with RDP."
