Project name: French International School (T.K.O. Campus)
Completion date: September 2018
Features: Sustainability and Open Space Concept
SUSTAINABLE DESIGN FOR MORE OPEN SPACES
The new campus of the French International School in Tseung Kwan O offers a new way of learning to students. The innovating Villa Concept is a brilliant design by a Danish company. It is a new way of design to transfer traditional classrooms into flexible common spaces. Teachers and students can transform the space into a common area for a group project or a quiet private space for individual study. ASSA ABLOY Hong Kong is proud to be part of this project and provide different opening solutions to facilitate this innovative design concept.
Similar to other academic building, this project values a lot on the durability of the high volume usage. The school requested high level of security for the premium teaching equipment and at the same time need to ensure students’ safety. Therefore, the ABLOY Fire Door Closing System is introduced to this project because it obtains a certification according to EN1158 standard that maximises the security and convenience to users.
The school also focuses on nurturing the creative and sporting sides of students, so they have dedicated music and art rooms and state-of-the-art sporting facilities at TKO campus. There is also a gymnasium, swimming pool and a 300-seat auditorium with huge door & glass solutions. ASSA ABLOY installed floor spring which is suitable for fire and smoke protection door.
To avoid possible accidents, ASSA ABLOY proposed the Lorient finger guard seal system. It provides a shield to trapping fingers in hinged doors, for both hinge knuckle side and hinge cavity side.
