ASSA ABLOY issues whitepaper on education buildings

  • 4 Oct 2018

ASSA ABLOY UK Specification has announced the introduction of its latest whitepaper, entitled ‘Specification considerations for education buildings: doors and ironmongery’. The whitepaper will provide a guide to the specification of doorsets and associated hardware in nurseries, schools and universities.

0The whitepaper outlines the various relevant standards when specifying doors and ironmongery for education projects, including those relating to accessibility and usability. It aims to provide clarification, along with practical advice and unique considerations, specifically for doorset and ironmongery specification within education settings.

In addition, it also covers whole life costing implications and why these considerations are imperative for a successful specification, as well as discusses how architects and contractors within the education sector can contribute to a better built environment by factoring in health and wellbeing influencers.

David Shields, National Specification Manager for ASSA ABLOY UK Specification and the author of the paper comments: “In a procurement environment with multiple stakeholders where funding is tightly controlled, education buildings have to be flexible and future-proofed. They need to deliver cost certainty and the highest standards of specification.

“This is why contractors, architects, local education authorities, facilities managers and head teachers are often pulled in very different directions when it comes to product specification for education buildings.”
