The Perfect Finish – Column Casing with Style

The finishing touches to any construction project really do contribute to the overall appearance and feel of the build. In many cases it is these finishing touches that increase the client’s level of satisfaction in the project. When it comes to concealing structural columns and unsightly support structures, column casings have become the ultimate finishing touch.  Column casings provide a stylish integrated finish, which provides the perfect solution for concealing internal and external structural columns.

Increasing role for Anodised Aluminium in School Design

Comprehensive changes are being implemented in the way schools are designed and built. Building cost reduction is driving the new schools building agenda. However it has also been recognised that inexpensive, short-term solutions do not necessarily produce cost savings over longer periods.

There will need to be an increased emphasis on assessing the life-cycle costs of interior design materials. Careful consideration will be given to select materials that are durable, easy to clean, environmentally safe and are economically viable to recycle.
